Studies on the mechanism of reduced urinary osmolality after exposure of renal papilla

The Journal of Clinical Investigation
E L ChuangJ H Stein


Studies were performed in Munich-Wistar rats to determine whether changes in papillary plasma flow might be responsible for the concentrating defect which occurs after exposure of the extrarenal papilla. Papillary plasma flow was measured by (125)I-albumin accumulation. Initial studies in hydropenic animals revealed that papillary plasma flow was 40% higher in the kidney with the exposured papilla, 41 vs. 29 ml/min per 100 g of papilla (P < 0.001). This increase in papillary plasma flow was detectable 15 or 45 min after removing the ureter. Because it was unclear whether the rise in papillary plasma flow was a cause or the result of the fall in urine osmolality, similar studies were performed in animals undergoing a water diuresis. In this setting, papillary plasma flow still increased on the exposed side compared to the control side, 81 vs. 60 ml/min per 100 g, despite similarly low urine osmolalities of 155 and 174 mosmol/kg, respectively. This finding is compatible with the possibility that papillary exposure per se causes an increase in papillary plasma flow and that this hemodynamic alteration may lead to a reduction in urinary osmolality secondary to washout of the medullary interstitium. A final group of hydropenic rats ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
