Abstract

Sodium transport was measured in brush-border membrane vesicles prepared from kidney cortex of the Milan hypertensive strain (MHS) rats and the corresponding normotensive controls. In the presence of an outwardly directed proton gradient, 22Na was transiently accumulated in the vesicles. When a transmembrane electrical potential was imposed across membrane vesicles, both the accumulation ratio and the initial uptake were increased, indicating the presence of an electrogenic pathway for sodium in these membranes. The potential-dependent sodium uptake was significantly higher in MHS rats. Kinetic analysis give simple Michaelis Menten curves in the presence and in the absence of a membrane potential. In both conditions Jmax was significantly increased in MHS rats, whereas Km was the same for the two rat strains. Sodium uptake was inhibited by amiloride at concentrations that inhibit Na+-H+ exchange. The presence of the higher, potential-sensitive, sodium uptake in MHS is in agreement with studies on renal physiology which support the hypothesis that an increase in tubular sodium reabsorption may be the primary cause for the development of hypertension in this rat strain.
