The role of Na-K-activated adenosine triphosphatase in potassium adaptation. Stimulation of enzymatic activity by potassium loading.

Abstract

The specific activity of sodium-potassium-activated adenosine triphosphatase (Na-K-ATPase) in homogenates of rat kidneys increases when the dietary intake of potassium is chronically increased. The effect is seen first and is most prominent in the outer medulla, but large loads of potassium elicit an increase in the cortex as well. Levels of Na-K-ATPase in… (More)
