Effect of SAP Aa D on renal Na
- (A) and (Na
)-ATPase activities (B). Rats were given an oral loading of physiological solution (0.9 % NaCl, 4 ml/100 g body weight) in the absence (control) and presence of 50 mg/kg of SAPAa D). At 90 min after SAPAa D administration, rats were sacrificed, and the kidneys were removed for renal cortical ATPase measurement. ATPases’ activities were expressed as nmol Pi per milligram of total protein per minute. Data are expressed as means ± SEM of four rats/group. *p < 0.05 compared with the control group, unpaired Student’s t-test.
