The glomerulus is a complex structure that functions primarily to produce an ultrafiltrate of plasma. Micropuncture studies in the Munich-Wistar rat have identified the major physical determinants of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR): glomerular plasma flow; afferent protein concentration; transcapillary hydraulic-pressure difference; and the glomerular capillary ultrafiltration coefficient (Kf) (1). Studies in this model also indicate that a number of circulating hormones (e.g., parathyroid hormone, vasopressin), as well as other biological messengers that are produced in the kidney and that act locally through an autacrine or paracrine mechanism (prostaglandins, angiotensin II, histamine, and brady-kinin), can affect the GFR (2). In addition to vasoactive effects on the afferent and efferent renal arterioles with subsequent alteration of renal vascular resistance, many of these substances affect the filtration process by a reduction in Kf, an action that appears to be mediated by contraction of the glomerular mesangial cell and reduction of the glomerular capillary surface area. This may be due to a direct contractile effect of the agonist on the mesangial cell, as in the case of angiotensin II and vasopressin, or by secondary activation of the renin-angiotensin system (2–3).
