Abstract

Thyroid hormone (T3), a known stimulator of renal proximal tubular brush border membrane Na-dependent phosphate (Pi) uptake (Na/Pi-cotransport), stimulated Na-dependent Pi transport in opossum kidney (OK) cells. Na/Pi-cotransport was stimulated in a time- and dose-dependent manner with maximal effects (57%) at 24 h and 10(-10) M T3. This stimulation was related to an increase in the apparent capacity (Vmax) of Na/Pi-cotransport. Treatment with T3 had no effect on Na-independent transport of Pi or of L-arginine. The stimulation of Na/Pi-cotransport was paralleled by an increase in the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) encoding the OK cell apical Na/Pi-cotransporter (termed NaPi-4); the mRNA levels related to the activity of Na-independent L-arginine transport (rBAT) were unaffected by T3. Actinomycin D (10(-7) M) completely prevented the stimulatory effect of T3 on OK cell Na/Pi-cotransport and on NaPi-4 mRNA content. In conclusion, T3 stimulates apical Na/Pi-cotransport in OK cells most likely by enhancing its transcription.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
