31Phosphorus NMR Studies of Mercuric Chloride Nephrotoxicity in the in Vitro Perfused Rat Kidney
31P Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) studies of the effect of hypoxia on ATP levels in the isolated perfused rat kidney have shown that a step-wise decrease in oxygen delivery is associated with a step-wise decrease in ATP to a new plateau level (1). The decrement in ATP was closely correlated with the volume extent of cellular necrosis determined from morphometric analysis of the same kidneys at the end of the perfusion period.
