The role of adenosine in glycine-induced glomerular hyperfiltration in rats.


Ingestion of a high-protein diet or infusion of amino acids induces glomerular hyperfiltration and hyperemia. We have investigated the role of endogenous adenosine in glycine-induced hyperfiltration. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) were measured in conscious chronically instrumented rats. Glycine (3.7 mg/min, i.v.; n… (More)
