Title

Renal organic anion secretion: evidence for dopaminergic and adrenergic regulation

Abstract

To examine possible regulatory control of renal proximal tubule organic anion secretion, winter flounder (Pleuronectes americanus) proximal tubule primary cultures were mounted in Ussing chambers. Unidirectional fluxes of [2,4-(14)C]dichlorophenoxyacetic acid were determined under short-circuited conditions. Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (1 microM) caused a significant (P < 0.01) inhibition of net 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid secretion. Preincubation with staurosporine (1 microM) blocked the phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate-induced decrease in secretion. Neither forskolin (10 microM) nor W-7 (20 microM) had any effect on net transport. Elevation of intracellular calcium activity with either A-23187 or thapsigargin produced a slight, transient decrease in transport. Addition of dopamine (1 microM) to the peritubular side, but not the luminal side, caused a significant (P < 0.01) decrease in net secretion. Both the alpha-adrenergic agonist oxymetazoline (10 microM) and depletion of intracellular Na+ transiently, but significantly (P < 0.05), increased net transport. The data indicate that renal organic anion excretion may be regulated through dopaminergic inhibition and alpha-adrenergic stimulation of net transepithelial secretion.
