          Abstract

          Renal tubular function was evaluated in vitro by kidney slice uptakes of p-aminohippurate (PAH) and tetraethylammomum (TEA) at 24 and 48 h in water-drinking rats and at 24 h in chronic saline-loaded rats after induction of acute tubular necrosis (ATN) by HgCl<sub>2</sub> and glycerol injection. Significant correlations between decreased tubular uptake of PAH and TEA and elevated serum creatinine levels were noted in both models of ATN in water- and saline-drinking rats. However, with the same degree of impairment of PAH and TEA uptakes the creatinine was significantly lower in saline-loaded rats than in water-drinking rats in both forms of ATN. The correlation between impaired tubular function and elevated creatinine suggests that tubular damage and glomerular filtration reduction might be pathophysiologically related in ATN.
