 The effect of arginine vasopressin (AVP) on transepithelial Ca2+ transport in primary cultures of rabbit cortical collecting system cells was examined. Addition of AVP to the basolateral side of the monolayer dose-dependently (EC50 = 0.7 nM) increased active Ca2+ reabsorption from a basal value of 85 ± 2 nmol·h–1·cm–2 to a maximum value of 124 ± 3 nmol·h–1… CONTINUE READING
