Tetraethylammonium and amantadine identify distinct organic cation transporters in rat renal cortical proximal and distal tubules.


Tetraethylammonium (TEA) and amantadine are two organic cations that are secreted by the kidney. It appears that each cation may characterize distinct renal tubule organic cation transport pathways. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the renal proximal and distal tubule energy-dependent transport properties of TEA and amantadine. Isolated tubules were… (More)
