Tubule glomerular feedback

Cesar Romero, Sumit Monu, Glauber Cabral, Robert Knight, Oscar Carretero
OBJECTIVE: Renal hemodynamics is critical for regulation of glomerular filtration (GFR), sodium excretion and blood pressure (BP), and it depends on myogenic response, tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) and connecting tubule-glomerular feedback (CTGF). CTGF dilates afferent arteriole in response to high sodium in connecting tubule (CNT), counteracting and resetting TGF; and increasing the plasma flow and glomerular pressure favoring sodium excretion. CTGF is initiated by epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) activation in CNT and inhibited by ENaC blocker Benzamil...

Connecting tubule glomerular feedback (CTGF) is a mechanism where an increase in sodium (Na) concentration in the connecting tubule (CNT) causes the afferent arteriole (Af-Art) to dilate. We recently reported that aldosterone within the CNT lumen enhances CTGF via a nongenomic effect involving GPR30 receptors and sodium/hydrogen exchanger (NHE), but the signaling pathways of this mechanism are unknown. We hypothesize that aldosterone enhances CTGF via cAMP/protein kinase A (PKA) pathway that activates protein kinase C (PKC) and stimulates superoxide (O-2) production...

Caffeine is an alkaloid which belongs to the family of methylxanthines and is present in beverages, food and drugs. Caffeine competitively antagonizes the adenosine receptors (AR), which are G protein-coupled receptors largely distributed throughout the body, including brain, heart, vessels and kidneys. Caffeine consumption has a well-known diuretic effect. The homeostasis of salt and water involves different segments of the nephron, in which adenosine plays complex roles depending on the differential expression of AR...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The kidney mediates the excretion or conservation of water and electrolytes in the face of changing fluid and salt intake and losses. To ultrafilter and reabsorb the exact quantities of free water and salts to maintain euvolemia a range of endocrine, paracrine, and hormonal signaling systems have evolved linking the tubules, capillaries, glomeruli, arterioles, and other intrinsic cells of the kidney. Our understanding of these systems remains incomplete. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent work has provided new insights into the workings of the communication pathways between tubular segments and the glomeruli and vasculature, with novel therapeutic agents in development...

Blood flow in the mammalian kidney is tightly autoregulated. One of the important autoregulation mechanisms is the myogenic response, which is activated by perturbations in blood pressure along the afferent arteriole. Another is the tubuloglomerular feedback, which is a negative feedback that responds to variations in tubular fluid [Cl(-)] at the macula densa.(1) When initiated, both the myogenic response and the tubuloglomerular feedback adjust the afferent arteriole muscle tone. A third mechanism is the connecting tubule glomerular feedback, which is a positive feedback mechanism located at the connecting tubule, downstream of the macula densa...

To reduce lithium-induced nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (lithium-NDI), patients with bipolar disorder are treated with thiazide and amiloride, which are thought to induce antidiuresis by a compensatory increase in prourine uptake in proximal tubules. However, thiazides induced antidiuresis and alkalinized the urine in lithium-NDI mice lacking the sodium-chloride cotransporter, suggesting that inhibition of carbonic anhydrases (CAs) confers the beneficial thiazide effect. Therefore, we tested the effect of the CA-specific blocker acetazolamide in lithium-NDI...

AIMS: Obesity is an important risk factor for the development of chronic kidney disease. One of the major factors involved in the pathogenesis of obesity-associated kidney disease is glomerular hyperfiltration. Increasing salt-delivery to the macula densa is expected to decrease glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by activating tubuloglomerular feedback. Acetazolamide, a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor which inhibits salt reabsorption in the proximal tubule, increases distal salt delivery. Its effects on obesity-related glomerular hyperfiltration have not previously been studied...

Intrarenal autoregulatory mechanisms maintain renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) independent of renal perfusion pressure (RPP) over a defined range (80-180 mmHg). Such autoregulation is mediated largely by the myogenic and the macula densa-tubuloglomerular feedback (MD-TGF) responses that regulate preglomerular vasomotor tone primarily of the afferent arteriole. Differences in response times allow separation of these mechanisms in the time and frequency domains. Mechanotransduction initiating the myogenic response requires a sensing mechanism activated by stretch of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and coupled to intracellular signaling pathways eliciting plasma membrane depolarization and a rise in cytosolic free calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)]i)...

Kidney plays a key role in homeostasis of human body. It has heterogenic structure and is characterized by complicated vascular beds and numbers of sympathetic nerves endings. Nucleotides receptors are involved in the regulation of blood flow, a fundamental process for renal function. Plasma is filtrated in renal glomerulus and activity of nucleotides receptors located on cells of glomerular filter modifies the physi- cochemical properties of filter and affects the filtration process. Electrolytes, water and low molecular weight molecules are reabsorbed from tubular fluid or secreted into fluid in proximal and distal tubules...

Afferent (Af-Art) and efferent arterioles resistance regulate glomerular capillary pressure. The nephron regulates Af-Art resistance via: 1) vasoconstrictor tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF), initiated in the macula densa via Na-K-2Cl cotransporters (NKCC2) and 2) vasodilator connecting tubuloglomerular feedback (CTGF), initiated in connecting tubules via epithelial Na channels (ENaC). Furosemide inhibits NKCC2 and TGF. Benzamil inhibits ENaC and CTGF. In vitro, CTGF dilates preconstricted Af-Arts. In vivo, benzamil decreases stop-flow pressure (PSF), suggesting that CTGF antagonizes TGF; however, even when TGF is blocked, CTGF does not increase PSF, suggesting there is another mechanism antagonizing CTGF...

Mathematical models of the proximal tubule (PT), loop of Henle (LOH), and distal nephron have been combined to simulate transport by rat renal tubules. The ensemble is composed of 24,000 superficial (SF) nephrons and 12,000 juxtamedullary (JM) nephrons in 5 classes (according to LOH length); all coalesce into 7,200 connecting tubules (CNT). Medullary interstitial solute concentrations are specified. The model equations require that each nephron glomerular filtration rate (GFR) satisfies a tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) relationship, and each initial hydrostatic pressure yields a common CNT pressure; that common CNT pressure is determined from an overall distal hydraulic resistance to flow...

Proximal tubule and loop of Henle function are coupled, with proximal transport determining loop fluid composition, and loop transport modulating glomerular filtration via tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF). To examine this interaction, we begin with published models of the superficial rat proximal convoluted tubule (PCT; including flow-dependent transport in a compliant tubule), and the rat thick ascending Henle limb (AHL). Transport parameters for this PCT are scaled down to represent the proximal straight tubule (PST), which is connected to the thick AHL via a short descending limb...

Tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) describes the negative relationship between (a) NaCl concentration at the macula densa and (b) glomerular filtration rate or glomerular capillary pressure. TGF-induced vasoconstriction of the afferent arteriole results from the enhanced effect of several vasoconstrictors with an effect size sequence of adenosine = 20-HETE > angiotensin II > thromboxane = superoxide > renal nerves > ATP. TGF-mediated vasoconstriction is limited by the simultaneous release of several vasodilators with an effect size sequence of nitric oxide > carbon monoxide = kinins > adenosine...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Renal hyperfiltration has been used as a surrogate marker for increased intraglomerular pressure in patients with diabetes mellitus. Previous human investigation examining the pathogenesis of hyperfiltration has focused on the role of neurohormones such as the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). Unfortunately, RAAS blockade does not completely attenuate hyperfiltration or diabetic kidney injury. More recent work has therefore investigated the contribution of renal tubular factors, including the sodium-glucose cotransporter, to the hyperfiltration state, which is the topic of this review...

The kidney filters vast quantities of Na at the glomerulus but excretes a very small fraction of this Na in the final urine. Although almost every nephron segment participates in the reabsorption of Na in the normal kidney, the proximal segments (from the glomerulus to the macula densa) and the distal segments (past the macula densa) play different roles. The proximal tubule and the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle interact with the filtration apparatus to deliver Na to the distal nephron at a rather constant rate...

AIM: Tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) is an important mechanism in control of signal nephron glomerular filtration rate. The oxidative stress in the macula densa, primarily determined by the interactions between nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide (O2-), is essential in maintaining the TGF responsiveness. However, few studies examining the interactions between and amount of NO and O2- generated by the macula densa during normal and hypertensive states. METHODS: In this study, we used isolated perfused juxtaglomerular apparatus to directly measure the amount and also studied the interactions between NO and O2- in macula densa in both physiological and slow pressor Angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced hypertensive mice...

Increasing Na delivery to epithelial Na channels (ENaC) in the connecting tubule (CNT) dilates the afferent arteriole (Af-Art), a process we call connecting tubule glomerular feedback (CTGF). We hypothesize that aldosterone sensitizes CTGF via a nongenomic mechanism that stimulates CNT ENaC via the aldosterone receptor GPR30. Rabbit Af-Arts and their adherent CNTs were microdissected and simultaneously perfused. Two consecutive CTGF curves were elicited by increasing luminal NaCl in the CNT. During the control period, the concentration of NaCl that elicited a half-maximal response (EC50) was 37...

Optimal prevention and treatment of chronic kidney disease in diabetes requires implementing therapies that specifically interfere with the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. In this regard, significant attention has been given to alterations of the proximal tubule and resulting changes in glomerular filtration rate. At the onset of diabetes mellitus, hyperglycemia causes increases in proximal tubular reabsorption secondary to induction of tubular growth with associated increases in sodium/glucose cotransport...

A mathematical model of renal hemodynamics was used to assess the individual contributions of the tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) mechanism and the myogenic response to glomerular filtration rate regulation in the rat kidney. The model represents an afferent arteriole segment, glomerular filtration, and a short loop of Henle. The afferent arteriole model exhibits myogenic response, which is activated by hydrostatic pressure variations to induce changes in membrane potential and vascular muscle tone. The tubule model predicts tubular fluid and Cl(-) transport...

We have developed a whole kidney model of the urine concentrating mechanism and renal autoregulation. The model represents the tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) and myogenic mechanisms, which together affect the resistance of the afferent arteriole and thus glomerular filtration rate. TGF is activated by fluctuations in macula densa [Cl(-)] and the myogefnic mechanism by changes in hydrostatic pressure. The model was used to investigate the relative contributions of medullary blood flow autoregulation and inhibition of transport in the proximal convoluted tubule to pressure natriuresis in both diuresis and antidiuresis...
