The relation between sodium transport and oxygen consumption in isolated perfused rat kidney.

Abstract

A non-filtering isolated perfused rat kidney model was developed to determine renal oxygen consumption in the absence of tubular reabsorption. The oxygen consumption in the absence of filtration was 3.1 +/- 0.8 micron of O2/min/g. This "basal" value was substantially higher than that of 2.0 micron of O2/min/g calculated by extrapolation of a plot of sodium… (More)
