Histochemical changes in kallikrein-like activity in the rat nephron induced by chronic salt-load or salt-depletion were investigated semiquantitatively, using a synthetic substrate for kallikrein, pro-phe-arg-naphthylester. The location of the changes in the different segments of the nephron was established by comparison with neighbouring freeze-dried… (More)
