Sodium intake markedly alters renal interstitial fluid adenosine.

Abstract

Adenosine is produced locally in the kidney. Accumulating data suggest that adenosine plays a role in regulating renal functions. Using a microdialysis technique, we monitored adenosine levels in cortical and medullary renal interstitial fluid and urine after 5 days of diets containing low (0.15%), normal (0.28%), and high (4.0%) sodium. Samples were… (More)
