Urea transport in a distributed loop model of the urine-concentrating mechanism.

Abstract

Continuously distributed loops of Henle were used in a central core model of the rat kidney's urine-concentrating mechanism to investigate the importance of overlapping loops for three different modes of urea transport in the long loops of Henle: 1) urea-impermeable loops, 2) urea-permeable loops (as indicated by perfused tubule experiments), and 3) loops… (More)
