    Notes: Summary The kinetics ofl-histidine reabsorption by the proximal convolution of the rat nephron have been studied by stationary microperfusion with simultaneous perfusion of peritubular capillaries. Steady-state concentrations (C ∞) and transepithelial concentration differences (Δc ∞) were determined over a wide range of peritubular bistidine concentrations. It was found that Δc ∞ increased hyperbolically with increase in luminal and peritubular histidine concentrations suggesting saturation transport kinetics. Furthermore Δc ∞ declined linearly along the convolution suggesting that nett active transport was not constant throughout the tubule. Using an expression to describe the rate of attainment of steady-state concentration in terms of lummal and peritubular histidine concentrations, histidine permeability coefficient (P), the maximum rate of active histidine transport (J max) and the half saturation constant of the transport reaction (K m ), we were able to determine the cause of the tubule inhomogeneity. We find thatP (14.1×10−5 cm/s) andJ max (45×10−10 mol/cm2· s) are constant along the convolution but thatK m increases markedly from about 5.4 mmol/kg 26% of the way along the convolution to 40 mmol/kg at 86%. These findings suggest that the histidine reabsorptive mechanism would be relatively inefficient with histidinuria occurring at all plasma concentrations but it would have enormous reserve capacity so that saturation would not readily occur. This prediction accords with available data on histidine clearance in the rat.

    Notes: Summary Stationary microperfusion of the rat proximal convoluted tubule together with simultaneous perfusion of the peritubular blood capillaries has been used to studyl-histidine andl-glutamine transport in the rat kidney. When histidine and glutamine concentrations in the capillary perfusate were 14.1 and 6.9 mmol/kg respectively, the luminal concentrations stabilized at about 5.6 and 2.0 mmol/kg respectively. The transepithelial concentration differences at steady-state were 8 mmol/kg (histidine) and 5 mmol/kg (glutamine). The results indicated that when peritubular capillary concentrations were high enough, nett passive back-flux of amino acids down a concentration gradient can become of considerable importance in determining nett reabsorptive rates. When the steady-state epithelial concentration differences were analysed in relation to perfusion site within the proximal convolution, it was found that the gradient was greatest near the glomerulus and smallest near thepars recta, the rate of decline along the convolution being approximately linear. This inhomogeneity of the proximal tubule seems to be due to a diminution in nett amino acid transport by about 50%. The results correlate well with the observation in Fanconi syndrome (congenital renal aminoaciduria with rickets) that only the first 1/3 of the proximal tubule usually shows marked pathological changes.

    Notes: Summary The standing droplet method has been used in combination with the peritubular perfusion of blood capillaries to determine the build up of transtubular concentration differences of phosphate (P i ) in the renal proximal convoluted tubule of parathyroidectomized rats. Electron probe analysis was used to estimate P i . At zero time both the intraluminal and the contraluminal P i concentration was 2 mM. The time dependent decrease of the intraluminal P i concentration was approximately 4 times faster in the early than in the late proximal convoluted tubule. After 45 sec an intraluminal steady state concentration of 0.20 mM P i was achieved in the early part. In the late part the intraluminal P i concentration approached a steady state value of 0.54 mM at 120 sec. When sodium free solutions were used the intraluminal P i concentration increased to 2.22 mM in the earlier and to 2.76 mM in the late part. The data indicate that in the proximal convoluted tubule 1. The rate of phosphate reabsorption is greater in the early part than in the later part, and 2. phosphate reabsorption might occur as co-transport with Na+ ions.

    Notes: Abstract In order to evaluate whether N-containing substrates interact with the organic “anion” (p-aminohippurate, PAH) or only with the organic “cation” (N 1-methylnicotinamide, NMeN) transport system or with both, the stop-flow peritubular capillary microperfusion method was applied in the rat kidney in situ and the apparent K i values of several classes or organic substrate against contraluminal NMeN and PAH transport were determined. Organic “anion” and organic “cation” transport are in inverted commas because neither transporter sees the degree of ionization in bulk solution, and they also accept nonionizable substrates [Ullrich KJ, Rumrich G (1992) Pflügers Arch 421:286–288]. Amines must be sufficiently hydrophobic (phenylethylamine, piperidine, piperazine) in order to interact with NMeN transport. Additional Cl, Br, NO2 or other electronegative groups render them inhibitory towards PAH transport also. Such bisubstrate amines were identified as follows: metoclopramide, bromopride, diphenhydramine, bromodiphenhydramine, verapamil, citalopram, ketamine, mefloquine, ipsapirone, buspirone, trazodone, H7 and trifluoperazine. Imidazole analogues interact with both transporters if they bear sufficiently hydrophobic alkyl or aryl groups or electronegative sidegroups. Bisubstrate imidazole analogues are tinidazole, pilocarpine, clonidine, azidoclonidine and cimetidine. Pyridines and thiazoles interact with the NMeN transporter if they have an additional ring-attached NH2 group. Again with an additional Cl, Br, or NO2 group the aminopyridines and aminothiazoles also become inhibitors for the PAH transporter. Amongst the guanidines only substances with several electronegative side-groups such as guanfacine, amiloride, benzylamiloride and ranitidine, interact with both transporters. Amongst the phenylhydrazines only 4-bromophenylhydrazine interacts with the NMeN transporter and 4-nitrophenylhydrazine with both transporters. Quinoline (isoquinoline) and its amino and hydroxy analogues interact with both transporters, their pKa values correlate directly with the affinity to the NMeN transporter and reciprocally with their affinity to the PAH transporter. In experiments with labelled substrates only the sufficiently hydrophilic cimetidine, amiloride and ranitidine show a saturable transport, which can be inhibited by probenecid (apalcillin) and tetraethylammonium in an additive manner. The highly hydrophobic substrates verapamil, citalopram, imipramine, diltiazem and clonidine enter the cell very fast in an unsaturable and uninhibitable manner, apparently in the undissociated form, since N-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium, which — disregarding its ionization — is similarly hydrophobic, shows a transport behaviour similar to that of tetraethylammonium [Ullrich et al. (1991) Pflügers Arch 419:84–92]. Ethidium bromide and dimidium bromide, which have a permanent cationic quaternary nitrogen and two sufficiently electronegative NH2 groups, also interact with both transporters. The data indicate that a molecule qualifies as a bisubstrate if it carries both the essentials for organic anion (PAH) transport: hydrophobicity, sufficient acidity or electron-attracting O, OH, Cl, Br, NO2 groups, plus the essentials for organic cation transport: hydrophobicity, sufficient basicity or electron-donating N-containing groups. The nitrogen atoms in the N-containing molecules quinoline (pK a 4.9), isoquinoline (pK a 5.4) and benzylpyridine (pK a 5.13) are of such low basicity that they apparently can also interact with the PAH transporter. Apparent hydrophobicity (disregarding ionization) determines interaction with the transporters, while real hydrophobicity [log (octanol distribution values)] determines the diffusion through the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane.

    Notes: Abstract In order to test what chemical structure is required for a substrate to interact not only with the contraluminal organic anion (p-aminohippurate, PAH) transporter, but also with the organic cation (N 1-methylnicotinamide, NMeN, or tetraethylammonium, TEA) transporter, the stop-flow peritubular capillary perfusion method was applied and app. K i values were evaluated. Zwitterionic hydrophobic dipeptides not only interact with PAH but also with NMeN transport although with lower inhibitory potency (K i,PAH=0.2–1.4; K i,NMeN 614 mmol/l). Amongst the zwitterionic cephalosporins, which all inhibit PAH transport, the amino cephalosporin analogue cefadroxil was identified to interact also with NMeN transport (K i,PAH = 3.0, K i,NMeN=11.2 mmol/l). All Zwitterionic naphthyridine and oxochinoline gyrase inhibitors tested inhibit NMeN transport with app. K i,NMeN values between 1.2 mmol/l and 4.7 mmol/l; the naphthyridine analogues show a good inhibitory potency against PAH transport (K i,PAH ≈ 0.4 mmol/l), the piperazine-containing quinolone analogues have a moderate inhibitory potency (K i,PAH=1.1–2.5 mmol/l) and the piperazine-containing pipemidic acid did not inhibit PAH transport at all. Zwitterionic thiazolidine carboxylate phosphamides also interact with both transporters (app. K i,PAH ≈ 3.0; app. K i,NMeN ≈ 18.0 mmol/l). The nonionizable oxo- and hydroxy-group-containing corticosteroid hormones also interact with the two transporters. (a) An OH group in position 21 is necessary for interaction with the PAH transporter, but not for interaction with the TEA transporter. (b) Introduction of an OH group in position 17α abolishes interaction with the TEA transporter, but has different effects with the PAH transporter. (c) Introduction of an OH group in position 6 abolishes interaction with both, the PAH and the TEA transporter. (d) A change of the side-group in position 11 of corticosterone from -OH to -H to=O enhances interaction with the PAH transporter but has no effect on the interaction with the TEA transporter. Nonionizable 4- or 5-androstene analogues inhibit both transporters with app. K i between 0.16 mmol/l and 0.64 mmol/l, if the steroids are soluble in a concentration greater than 1 mmol/l. Nonionizable oxazaphosphorins with more than one chloroethyl group interact with the PAH transporter with app. K i between 0.84mmol/l and 4.9mmol/l and with the NMeN transporter with app. K i between 3.2 mmol/l and 18.7 mmol/l. Thus a substrate interacts with both transporters if it is sufficiently hydrophobic, possesses acidic and/or electron-attracting plus basic and/or electron-donating groups, or possesses several electron-attracting nonionizable groups (O, OH, Cl). A certain spatial arrangement of the interacting groups seems to be necessary.

    Notes: Abstract In order to study the specificity of the contraluminal para-aminohippurate (PAH) transport system, the inhibitory potency of monocarboxylates on the3H-PAH influx from the interstitium into cortical tubular cells in situ has been determined. The following was found: if a homologous series of fatty acids with increasing chain length is tested, inhibition of contraluminal PAH influx is first seen with valerate (app.K i 1.4 mmol/l), increasing up to nonanoate (app.K i 0.06 mmol/l) and remaining in this range up to duodecanoate, the last compound of this series which is sufficiently water-soluble. Similarly, the inhibitory potency of aromatic monocarboxylates increases with increasing hydrophobicity. If the fatty acids are esterified, their inhibitory potency is lost. If they are transformed to the respective aldehydes their inhibitory potency is preserved at a reduced degree. Introduction of a hydrophobic methyl-, ethyl-, or propyl-group increases the inhibitory potency. A β-, but not an α-oxo-group augments the inhibitory potency of phenylpropionate analogs, an OH group diminishes it, and a NH2 group abolishes it. Among phenyl-fatty acids an increase in affinity is observed from phenyl- 〈 benzoylamine-〈 phenoxy- 〈 benzoyl-acetate and-propionate. All monocarboxylate compounds, so far tested, do not inhibit contraluminal sulfate and Na+/succinate influx. The data indicate that the PAH transporter interacts with monocarboxylates and also with aldehydes which have a hydrophobic moiety. An additional oxo-group facilitates the interaction. Thus, the benzoyl compounds show the highest affinity observed.

    Notes: Summary Early loops of the proximal convoluted tubule of parathyroidectomized rats (PTX-rats) were microperfused with a phosphate (4 mM) containing perfusate. With a perfusion solution of pH around 7.45 as estimated as anion deficit theP i reabsorption was two times greater than with a perfusion solution of pH around 6.85. TheP i reabsorption is reduced in PTX-rats made chronic alkalotic (PTX-cA-rats) but the same pH dependence ofP i reabsorption was found. The data indicate that the divalent phosphate is preferentially reabsorbed.

    Notes: Abstract In order to study the specificities of the contraluminal anion transport systems, the inhibitory potency of substituted benzene analogs on influx of [3H]PAH, [14C]succinate, and [35S]sulfate from the interstitium into cortical tubular cells has been determined in situ: (1) Contraluminal [3H]PAH influx is moderately inhibited by benzene-carboxylate and benzene-sulfonate, and strongly by benzene-dicarboxylates,-disulfonates and carboxy-benzene-sulfonates, if the substituents are located at positions 1 and 3 or 1 and 4. The affinity of the PAH transporter to polysubstituted benzoates increases with increasing hydrophobicity, decreasing electron density at the carboxyl group and decreasing pKa. Similar dependencies are observed for phenols. Benzaldehydes which do not carry an ionic negative charge are accepted by the PAH-transporter, if they possess a second partially charged aldehyde or NO2-group. (2) Contraluminal [14C]succinate influx is inhibited by benzene 1,3- or 1,4-dicarboxylates,-disulfonates and 1,3-or 1,4-carboxybenzene-sulfonates. Monosubstituted benzoates do not interact with the dicarboxylate transporter, but NO2-polysubstituted benzoates do. Phenol itself and 2-substituted phenol interact weakly possibly due to oligomer formation. (3) The contraluminal sulfate transporter interacts only with compounds which show a negative group accumulation such as 3,5-dinitro- or 3,5-dichloro-substituted salicylates. The data are consistent with three separate anion transport systems in the contraluminal membrane: The PAH transporter interacts with hydrophobic molecules carrying one or two negative charges (−COO−, −SO 3 − ) or two or more than two partial negative charges (−OH, −CHO, −SO2NH2, −NO2). The dicarboxylate transporter requires two electronegative ionic charges (−COO−, −SO 3 − ) at 5–9 Å distance or one ionic and several partial charges (−Cl, −NO2) at a favourable distance. The sulfate transporter interacts with molecules which have neighbouring electronegative charge accumulation.
