|Title:||RENAL SODIUM HANDLING AFTER NORADRENERGIC STIMULATION OF THE LATERAL HYPOTHALAMIC AREA IN RATS|
|Abstract:||1. The participation of special nephron segments in the renal control of sodium handling after adrenergic stimulation was investigated by determining lithium clearance in groups of 5-12 male Wistar rats (230-300 g) microinjected with noradrenaline into the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA). 2. Microinjection of noradrenaline (12.5 to 100.0 nmol/mul) into the LHA promoted a significant decrease in proximal sodium reabsorption (control, 86.5 +/- 1.3; 12.5, 81.4 +/- 2.0; 25.0, 72.6 +/- 2.4; 50.0, 75.4 +/- 1.8 and 100.0, 77.2 +/- 1.7%) and a dose-related increase in distal sodium reabsorption (control, 13.4 +/- 1.6; 12.5,18.4 +/- 1,25.0, 26.9 +/- 2.9; 50.0, 24.1 +/- 2.7; 100.0, 22.1 +/- 1.9%) with no significant changes in creatinine clearance. Fractional sodium reabsorption after different noradrenaline concentrations was significantly reduced in the proximal nephron sites up to the concentration of 25.0 nmol/mul. Beyond this concentration, a smaller but progressive increase in fractional sodium reabsorption was observed in the post-proximal segment. 3. These findings suggest an effective participation of proximal and post-proximal nephrons in natriuresis after lateral hypothalamic noradrenergic stimulation.|
