Both Sides Of The Border: A Texas Folklore Sampler (Publications of the Texas Folklore Society)

Texas has a wide inhabitants who has lived on each side of the border and created a folkloric combine that makes Texas certain. either side of the Border will get its identify from its emphasis on lately researched Tex-Mex folklore. yet we realize that Texas has different borders along with the Rio Grande. We use that identify with the folklorist's wisdom that each one of this state's songs, stories, and traditions have lived and prospered at the different aspects of Texas borders at one time or one other ahead of they crossed the rivers and grew to become "ours.

Sample text

By blocking this process, loop diuretics can reduce the ability of the kidney to concentrate urine (see Chapter 11). Increased sodium delivery to the principal cells in the collecting duct increases potassium secretion in return for sodium reabsorption. Clinical aspects The relationship between furosemide dose and effect is approximately logarithmic and a small increase in effect requires a large increase in dose. Usually a doubling is required. During long-term use, distal tubule hypertrophy can reduce the efficacy of loop diuretics, and additional inhibition of distal tubule sodium reabsorption by thiazides (especially metolazone) can be useful.

Barttin defects can also cause deafness, as ion transport is important in auditory function. The NCC sodium/chloride co-transporter Mutations in the genes encoding the NCC co-transporter in the distal tubule produces Gitelman’s syndrome. This disorder produces effects similar to those seen with the thiazide diuretics: there is excess loss of sodium, potassium, and magnesium in the urine. The excess urinary potassium loss is the result of enhanced tubular flow, which increases potassium secretion in the cortical collecting duct (see Chapter 7).

Water leaves and enters cells through aquaporin (AQP) water channels. Proximal tubule The proximal tubule is highly water permeable. As ions are reabsorbed, water follows by osmosis. This isotonic (or isoosmotic) reabsorption reduces the filtrate volume, but does not alter its osmolality. Around 65% of the filtrate is reabsorbed, driven by active sodium transport. Loop of Henle The descending limb is permeable to water, but not ions, whereas the ascending limb (both thick and thin sections) is permeable to ions, but not water.
