Effects of Potassium depletion on proximal tubule AT1 receptor localization
What is it about?
Both potassium depletion and renal ablation result in proximal tubule hypertrophy and the angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor localization in rat proximal tubules.
Why is it important?
It is possible that the AT1 receptor intracellular distribution is modulated by potassium depletion in proximal tubular cells of 5/6 nephrectomized rats.
