Urinary concentration in the papillary collecting duct of the rat. Role of the ureter

The Journal of Clinical Investigation
R E OliverR L Jamison


Urine was observed to flow intermittently in the collecting ducts of the extrarenal papilla of antidiuretic rats. The purpose of this investigation was to test Reinking and Schmidt-Nielsen's hypothesis that intermittent flow plays an important role in the production of maximally concentrated urine. Samples of collecting duct fluid were obtained from the base and tip of the papilla by micropuncture through the intact ureter. Fluid osmolality rose sharply from base, 894+/-120 mosmol/kg H(2)O(-1) (mean+/-SE), to tip, 1,667+/-114 (P<0.001), a distance of only 2 mm, and was due exclusively to reabsorption of water. After excision of the ureter, which abolished intermittent flow, osmolality fell modestly at the base to 723+/-82 mosmol/kg H(2)O(-1) (P < 0.02), but strikingly at the tip to 1,012+/-103 (P < 0.001). The pelvic ureter was paralyzed by topical verapamil and dimethylsulfoxide, which abolished intermittent flow. Osmolality of urine at the tip was not changed (1,959+/-184 mosmol/kg H(2)O(-1) before, vs. 1,957+/-126 after paralysis). The ureter was severed just beyond the papillary tip, a maneuver which preserved intermittent flow but abolished urinary reflux over the papilla. Urinary osmolality fell from 1,876+/-134 mosmol/kg...Continue Reading

Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathies

Autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, also called polyglandular autoimmune syndromes (PGASs), or polyendocrine autoimmune syndromes(PASs), are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterized by autoimmune activity against more than one endocrine organ, although non-endocrine organs can be affected. Discover the latest research on autoimmune polyendocrinopathies here.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes

This feed focuses on a rare genetic condition called Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes, which are characterized by autoantibodies against multiple endocrine organs. This can lead to Type I Diabetes.
