The effects of varying sodium concentrations on the metabolism of glutamine by the renal cortex of the rat

Abstract

We studied the effect of varying the sodium concentration on the tissue swelling and metabolism of renal cortical slices from control and acidotic rats. Lowering the sodium concentration in the incubation medium caused increased tissue swelling and depressed glutamine uptake, ammoniagenesis and gluconeogenesis in slices from both control and acidotic rats.
