point-counterpoint Adenosine mediates tubuloglomerular feedback

VARIATIONS OF NaCl concentration in the macula densa region of the tubule between 20 and 60 mM/l cause inverse changes in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) that, for the most part, are the result of a progressive increase in afferent arteriolar resistance and a subsequent fall in glomerular capillary pressure (5). The reductions in capillary pressure and GFR… CONTINUE READING
