The fol- lowing measurements were made during the course of the infusion, and were noted to be constant throughout the experiment: arterial plasma concentration of inulin 0.15 mg/ml, of para-amino hippuric acid 0.2 mg/ml; renal venous plasma concentration of para-amino hippuric acid 0.0015 mg/ml; urine ow 2 ml/min; urinary concentration of inulin 9.0 mg/ml, of para-amino hippuric acid 50 mg/ml. [ IN ] p = [ PAH ] p = [ PAH ] v = U = [ IN ] u = [ PAH ] u = A.

What is T m (transport maximum) for PAH secretion? In this problem, some PAH is still found in venous blood from the kidney. This implies two important facts: The tubular secretion mechanism is saturated; that is, the secretion rate is at T m . Since [ PAH ] v is non-zero, the simple equation for renal plasma ow (RPF = C L [ PAH ] ) is not completely valid, and the more complete formula based on conservation of mass must be used. secretion rate T m = = excretion rate filtration rate U [ PAH ] u GFR [ PAH ] p = = ( 2 )( 50 ) ( 120 )( . 2 ) = 100 24 = 76 mg/min 6.022j2004: Solutions to Problem Set 10 2 (undefined) [PAH] p mg/L Secreted mg/min 100 76 24 0.2 d e t e r c x E d e r e t l i F C.
