Abstract

The effect of antidiuretic hormone (arginine vasopressin, AVP, 10(-10) mol.l-1), parathyroid hormone (PTH, 10(-8) mol.l-1) and glucagon (10(-8) mol.l-1) on the transepithelial potential difference (PDte) and the transepithelial resistance (Rte) were tested in in vitro perfused cortical (cTAL) and medullary (mTAL) thick ascending limbs of Henle's loop of the mouse nephron. When compared with mTAL segments (PDte: 8.5 +/- 0.4 mV, n = 16), cTAL segments displayed a high PDte of 15.7 +/- 0.9 mV (n = 11) at the beginning of perfusion experiments which reached a value of 9.4 +/- 0.6 mV (n = 11) after 38 +/- 4 min perfusion. Simultaneously Rte increased significantly from 24 +/- 3 to 28 +/- 1 omega cm2 (n = 11). When PTH, AVP or glucagon were added to the bath solution, PDte increased with PTH from 10.3 +/- 0.8 to 15.2 +/- 0.8 mV (n = 13), with AVP from 10.2 +/- 0.5 to 15.0 +/- 0.7 mV (n = 24) and with glucagon from 11.3 +/- 1.9 to 15.3 +/- 2.1 mV (n = 8). At the same time Rte decreased from 30 +/- 3 to 23 +/- 2 omega cm2, from 28 +/- 1 to 23 +/- 1 omega cm2 and from 23 +/- 2 to 18 +/- 2 omega cm2, respectively.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS).
