The ability of renal cortical slices of newborn and young rats to accumulate a nonmetabolizable sugar, alpha-methylglucoside, is slight and does not reach adult capacity until 25 days of age. However, a rudimentary sugar transport system is present, as indicated by a further decrease in accumulation in the presence of phlorizin or absence of sodium ion… CONTINUE READING
