Urinary trehalase activity and renal brush-border damage in inhabitants of a cadmium-polluted area (Jinzu River basin).

Abstract

Elevated urinary trehalase activity was observed in the inhabitants of the Jinzu River basin. Urinary trehalase activity was correlated with other urinalysis components, such as beta 2-microglobulin, glucose, amino nitrogen, and cadmium, of which a high level was observed in cadmium-polluted areas as compared with the reference area. Renal trehalase is specifically localized in tubular brush borders [M. Nakano, J. Histochem. Cytochem., 30 (1982) 1243-1248]. From these results it is inferred that tubular brush-border damage occurs in inhabitants of the Jinzu River basin.
