The consequent alteration of the transepithelial potential difference in the thick ascending limb
will also result in a significant increase in the excretion of calcium and magnesium.
African Americans had sharper increases in stimulation from alcohol on the ascending limb
of the blood alcohol curve, and white males had increased sedation.
A subsequent study of three patients infected by the same serovar confirmed the clearance tests suggestive of impaired function of the NA, K, 2[Cl.sup.-] cotransporter (NKCC2) of the thick ascending limb
The loop of Henle consists of several segments including the thin descending limb, the thin ascending limb
of Henle, and the thick ascending limb
4.The thin ascending limb
contributes to the generation of the hypertonic medullary interstitium by
Their margins differentiate into descending and ascending limbs
of the filament, as already described for Arcidae and Mytilidae (Ridewood, 1903).
A similar mechanism occurs in the thick ascending limb
and the collecting duct with a few minor deviations.
Rather, excretion varies according to many factors, such as those affecting reabsorption in the thick ascending limb
, dietary magnesium intake, calcium concentration, pH balance, and certain hormones.
The contribution of the cortical collecting tubule to overall calcium reabsorption is small because the calcium permeability in the cortical collecting tubule is lower than in the thick ascending limb
and proximal tubule.
The loop of Henle is the next component of the tubular system and consists of the thin descending limb, thin ascending limb
, and thick ascending limb
