Tubular sodium handling and tubuloglomerular feedback in compensatory renal hypertrophy

Tubular sodium handling and tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) activity were assessed in established compensatory renal hypertophy in Sprague Dawleys rats. Hyperfiltration at the level of the single nephron was confirmed 4–6 weeks following a reduction in renal mass. TGF activity, determined as the difference between late proximal and early distal measurements… CONTINUE READING
