Renal transport systems Lots of transporter proteins for different molecules/ions so they can be reabsorbed. They all have maximum transport (TM) capacities where transport saturates i.e. 10mmol/l for glucose. Over this value, you excrete the excess in urine, so can be useful sign of disease either in kidneys or other systems. Amino acids also have a high TM value because you try and preserve as much of these useful nutrients as possible. Na+ absorption Na+ absorbed by active transport mechanisms, NOT by TM mechanism. Basolateral ATPases establish a gradient across the tubule wall. Proximal tubule is very permeable to Na+, so ions flow down gradient, across membranes. Microvilli create large surface area for absorption. Electrical gradient created also draws Cl- across. H2O follows Na+ due to osmotic force. Means fluid left in tubule is concentrated. Glucose handling - Glucose absorption also relies upon the Na+ gradient. - Most reabsorbed in proximal tubule. - At apical membrane, needs Na+/glucose cotransporter (SGLT) - Crosses basolateral membrane via glucose transporters (GLUT’s), which do not rely upon Na+. Amino acid handling - Preserve as much of these essential nutrients as possible. - Can be absorbed by GI tract, products of protein catabolism, or de novo synthesis of nonessential amino acids. - TM values lower than that of glucose, so can excrete excess in urine. - Amino acid transporters rely upon Na+ gradient at apical membrane, but a couple of exceptions don’t. - Exit across basolateral membrane via diffusion , but again, some exceptions rely on Na+. K+ handling - K+ is major cation in cells and balance is essential for life. - Small change from 4 to 5.5 mmoles/l = hyperkalaemia = ventric. fibrillation = death. - To 3.5 mmoles/l = hyperpolarise = arrhythmias and paralysis = death. - Reabsorb K+ at proximal tubule. - Changes in K+ excretion due to changes in K+ secretion in distal tubule - Medullary trapping of K+ helps to maximise K+ excretion when K+ intake is high. - K+ reabsorption along the proximal tubule is largely passive and follows the movement of Na+ and fluid (in collecting tubules, may also rely active transport). K+ secretion occurs in cortical collecting tubule (principal cells), and relies upon active transport of K+ across basolateral membrane and passive exit across apical membrane into tubular fluid.
Glomerular filtration rate - is a volume of plasma of blood which is filtered in kidney tubules per time unit. It is calculated after a formula: GFR = PeffKfF where Peff is effective filtration pressure; Kf – is a hydraulic conductivity (coefficient of filtration), F – filtering surface. Peff = HP – (Ponc + Ptis) where HP - is hydrostatical pressure in the capillaries of glomerulus (45 mmHg); Ponc is oncotic pressure of blood (20 mmHg); Ptis is hydrostatical pressure in the capsule of glomerulus or, so-called tissue pressure (10 mmHg). Going out from these formulas, it is possible to select 2 groups of mechanisms of violation of glomerular filtration: 1) diminishing of glomerular filtration. 2) Multiplying glomerular filtration
The daily ultrafiltrate amount, which gets into canalicules makes equal 99 % of this volume is exposed to a converse absorption mainly in proximal canalicules Reabsorption proteins, glucose, aminoacids, electrolytes, bicarbonates, phosphates and water almost completely are exposed The reabsorbtion selectivity provides kidneys epithelium ability to reabsorp one substance and simultaneously prevents the other. This function is executed by specific molecules – which are the carriers The dependence of reabsorbtion processes on molecules membrane – carriers means the limited canaliculus epithelium ability to transport reabsorbed substance If the concentration of substance in glomerulus filtrat exceeds possibilities transport system, then given substance threshold exceeding Takes place maximal reabsorption substrate speed is named as a maximal tubular one
Violation of reabsorption of amino acids. In a norm for days with urine secreted to 1 g of amino acid. Distinguish two types of aminoaciduria: a) renal and b) extrarenal. à) Aminoaciduria of renal origin is observed at the damages of kidney tubules and inherited conditioned defects of the systems of transport of amino acid through a cellular membrane (Fanconi&apos;s syndrome). b) Aminoaciduria of extra renal origin is observed at inherited violations of metabolism of amino acid and increase of their concentration in blood, at increased catabolism of albumens in the conditions of the different pathological states (hypoxia, starvation, damage of liver). Violation of reabsorption of electrolytes (Ê+, Na+, Ñà2+, Ñl–) and phosphates The decline of reabsorption of electrolytes is observed: - at diminishing of products of aldosterone - at the damages of epithelium of kidney tubules (inflammatory, dystrophic characters) - at the use of some medicinal preparations – inhibitors of reabsorption of electrolytes in kidney tubules (lasix and other diuretics). - at the inherited and purchased defects of transport systems (phosphatic kidney diabetes, Fankoni syndrome, poisoning by phlorhizin).
Mechanism of reabsorption. In primary urine (filtrate), as well as in blood, albumins are in a complex with free fat acids (FFA). Such complex co-operates with the epithelium of kidney tubules. FFA diminishes surface tension of cell membrane of epytheliocytes, that lead to penetrate this complex into the cell. Phagosome will be appearing as result. Phagosome co-operates with lysosome. Lysosomal proteases break up albumins to amino acids, which enter into blood. The disorder of proteins reabsorption appears as tubular proteinuria It is observed due to poisoning cadmium, hypoxia, burns, septicemia Moderate tubular insufficiency is characterized by the rather low contents in urine of albumins and other proteins with weight up to 40 kD (selective proteinuria). Dystrophic defeats canaliculus lead to in urine appearence proteins with molecular weight more than 40 kD (unselective proteinuria)
Disorder sodium and water reabsorbtion The increase of reabsorption is observed in fallowing case: hyperaldosteronism, oliguri stage of acute kidney insufficiency, reabsorption decrease – hypoaldosteronism, diabetes insipidus Sodium and water reabsorption is decreased as a result of canalicules epithelium metabolism inhibition by some poisons, including medicines, in particular, mercury diuretics. Reabsorbtion is limited because of glomerulus filtrate osmotic active substances (glucose, urin), increase owing to that so-called osmotic diuresis arises (example, diabetes mellitus) The heavy disorders of sodium and water resorbtion arise in case dystrophic and inflammatory canaliculus epithelim changes, so canalicules lose the ability to liquid concentration and cultivation. Loss of concentration ability is called hypostenuria, relative density aqual in state changes within the limit of 1,006-1,012 (norma – 1,002-1,035). If density urine is kept at 1,010 level and is not changed with influence water load, it is called isostenuria (monotone diuresis)
Prerenal causes of renal failure are those resulting from inadequate blood flow to the kidney. These include intravascular volume depletion, structural lesions of the renal arteries, drug effects on renal blood flow, and hypotension from any cause that results in renal hypoperfusion. Intrarenal causes are those disorders that result in damage to the nephron directly rather than indirectly as a secondary consequence of inadequate perfusion or obstruction. As mentioned, intrarenal causes include specific disorders of the kidney as well as systemic diseases with prominent manifestations in the kidney. Some of these disorders are manifested as glomerular injury, whereas others involve primarily the tubules. Within each category, disorders can be approached according to their specific cause or their phenotype and manifestations. Postrenal causes are those related to urinary tract obstruction, from either kidney stones, structural lesions (eg, tumors, prostatic hyperplasia, or strictures), or functional abnormalities (eg, spasm or drug effects).
Decrease of phosphates excretion lead to increase their level in blood. Result hydroxiapatite is derivation and ionized calcium level is decreased, thus it stimulates parathyroid glands. If GFS falls below 25 % of norm, secondary hyperparathyreosis become obvious. Resorbtion of bones is increased and their density is decreased. When weight nephrones is less than 25 %, the 25-ОН- vitamin D transformation to the active form – 1,25 (OH)2-vitamin D transformation is decelerated. It is the reason of calcium delay absorbtion in alimentary channel
Uremic toxins is nitrogen metabolism products. They are: urea, guanidine derivatives (methylguanidine, guanidinsuccinic and guanidinacetative acids, kreatine and kreatine), aromatic compounds (phenole, indole, aromatic amines), conjugated aminoacids, lowmolecular peptides. In uremia development significance is peptides hormones accumulation – parathhormone, insuline, glucagone, gastrine, vasopressine, adrenocorticotropic and somatotropic hormones. In the kidneys is catabolysed 25 % of peptide hormones. Some effects is stipulated compounds deficiency, which are not synthesized due to uremia. Examples – erythropoietine and 1,25-dioxyеnolecalciferol deficiency.
http://arirusila.cafebabel.com/en/cbtag/14920 The organ trafficking is negotiated by an elaborate network of criminals.For about $150,000, an organ broker connects a buyer and seller to a &quot;broker-friendly&quot; U.S. hospital, where surgeons are either complicit in the scheme or willing to turn a blind eye.The organ seller typically gets a few thousand dollars, plus a chance to see a U.S. city. Reputable U.S. medical centers transplant kidneys and other human organs they get illegally through the black market, a university anthropologist asserts. Surgeons take black-market kidneys from people in the world&apos;s most impoverished slums and put them into wealthy dialysis patients from the United States, Europe and and Israel, Nancy Scheper-Hughes of the University of California at Berkeley told Newsweek. (Source Newsweek 10th Jan 2009) The transplant tourism goes also opposite direction e.g. to China.One example about this global business and tourism is a case, when a New Yorker paid $60,000 to receive a kidney in a South African hospital from a Brazilian who was paid $6,000 for it; an Israeli businessman set up the deal. The bottom line With organ trafficking one can see inequality at its cruellest form.The main discriminative feature is between wealthy upper-class and the rest of the population.The other distinctive line goes between developed rich countries and the rest of the world. Transplantation is a growing problem in rich states because waiting lists are growing far faster than the supply of organs.Adding the trend of changing population-structure in developed countries one can easily estimate that the need of new transplants is growing creating bigger market for illegal organ trade. Is there anything to stop this trend?Short term I don’t believe so.Future can however change situation when research brings new solutions e.g. through gene, stem cell or material innovations.Even then the problem is who can pay these new treatments.

GFRGFR measurement is possible if one has a substance (call it x) that is
freely filterable at the glomerulus and then is not reabsorbed, secreted,
or changed in any way before it appears in the urine. To calculate the
GFR from this substance, one would measure its concentration in a
plasma sample (PxPx), its concentration in a urine sample (UxUx), and the
urine volume over a certain period of time (VV). Given these values, the
equation for GFR, in milliliters per minute, can be solved as shown in:
Ux (mg/mL) V (mL/min)
GFR (mL/min) =
The classic substance that fits the criteria described above for substance
xx is the polysaccharide inulininulin. However, inulin is not normally present in
the body, which means using inulin to measure GFR involves infusing it
into an individual for an extended period. This offers a highly accurate
but impractical method for measuring GFR.
Instead, what is usually measured in plasma and urine is the
concentration of creatinine, which is a naturally produced protein.

• GFR declines with age due to a 30 to 50% loss of functional
nephrons and reduced renal blood flow.
• Such a decline means that when drugs normally cleared by the
kidneys are given to an elderly individual, their dosage should
be adjusted to reflect declining renal function.
• However, because muscle mass, and therefore serum
creatinine, also declines with age, the increase in serum
creatinine level that normally indicates a fall in GFR may not be
• Since serum creatinine levels are frequently used to determine
drug dosing, elderly individuals may receive inappropriately
high doses of drugs despite reduced kidney function.
• This problem can have severe toxic consequences. In order to
adjust for age on GFR, the following equation has been
developed by Cockcoft and Gault:

• Defined as a generalized edemageneralized edema in
individuals suffering from hypoalbuminemia
as a result of nephrotic syndrome or other
conditions, anasarca is caused by a systemic
decrease in capillary osmotic pressure.
• With a decrease in this major force favoring
reabsorption of interstitial fluid back into the
capillaries, edema of the interstitial space
throughout the body occurs.
• The edema is usually soft and pitting and
occurs early in the periorbital (surrounding

The Major Renal Syndromes:
Acute nephritic syndrome is a glomerular syndrome
dominated by the acute onset of usually grossly visible
hematuria (red blood cells in urine), mild to moderate
proteinuria, azotemia, edema, and hypertension; it is the classic
presentation of acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis.
The nephrotic syndrome is a glomerular syndrome
characterized by heavy proteinuria (excretion of >3.5 gm of
protein/day in adults), hypoalbuminemia, severe edema,
hyperlipidemia, and lipiduria (lipid in the urine).
Asymptomatic hematuria or proteinuria, or a combination of
these two, is usually a manifestation of subtle or mild glomerular
Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis results in loss of
renal function in a few days or weeks and is manifested by
microscopic hematuria, dysmorphic red blood cells and red
blood cell casts in the urine sediment, and mild-to-moderate
The Major Renal Syndromes:
Acute renal failure is dominated by oliguria or anuria (no
urine flow), with recent onset of azotemia. It can result
from glomerular injury (such as crescentic
glomerulonephritis), interstitial injury, vascular injury (such
as thrombotic microangiopathy), or acute tubular
Chronic renal failure, characterized by prolonged
symptoms and signs of uremia, is the end result of all
chronic renal diseases.
Urinary tract infection is characterized by bacteriuria
and pyuria (bacteria and leukocytes in the urine). The
infection may be symptomatic or asymptomatic, and it
may affect the kidney (pyelonephritis) or the bladder

Disorders resulting in glomerular disease,Disorders resulting in glomerular disease,
whether manifestations of systemic injurywhether manifestations of systemic injury
or otherwise, fall into five categories:or otherwise, fall into five categories:
• 1. Acute glomerulonephritis, in which there is an abrupt onset of hematuria
and proteinuria with reduced GFR and renal salt and water retention, sometimes
followed by recovery of renal function. Patients with acute glomerulonephritis are
a subset of those with an intrarenal cause of acute kidney injury.
• 2. Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, in which recovery from the
acute disorder does not occur. Worsening renal function results in irreversible and
complete renal failure over weeks to months. Early in the course of rapidly
progressive glomerulonephritis, these patients can be categorized as having a
form of acute kidney injury. Later, with progression of their renal failure over time,
they display all of the features described for chronic renal failure.
• 3. Chronic glomerulonephritis, in which renal impairment after acute
glomerulonephritis progresses slowly over a period of years and eventually
results in chronic renal failure.
• 4. Nephrotic syndrome, manifested as marked proteinuria, particularly
albuminuria (defined as 24-hour urine protein excretion > 3.5 g),
hypoalbuminemia, edema, hyperlipidemia, and fat bodies in the urine. Nephrotic
syndrome may be either isolated (eg, minimal change disease) or part of some
other glomerular syndrome (eg, with hematuria and casts).
• 5. Asymptomatic urinary abnormalities, including hematuria and proteinuria
(usually in amounts below that seen in nephrotic syndrome) but no functional
abnormalities associated with reduced GFR, edema, or hypertension. Many
patients with these findings will develop chronic renal failure slowly over decades.
• Antibodies against inherent GBM
• Antibodies against “planted” antigens
• Trapping of Ag-Ab complexes
• Antibodies against glomerular cells, e.g.,
mesangial cells, podocytes, etc.
• Cell mediated immunity, i.e., sensitized T-
cells as in TB
