Abstract

Glucose and other hexoses as well as amino acids have been shown to inhibit the renal transport of phosphate (Pi). Although studies with renal brush border membrane vesicles showed that such an inhibitory effect on Pi transport is due to the dissipation of the Na electrochemical gradient, the mechanism(s) responsible for such an action in the intact cell is not clear. The present study examined the effects of tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle intermediates (succinate and fumarate) and acetate on the uptake of Pi and α-methylglucoside (AMG) at 37°C by intact rabbit renal cells. These TCA cycle compounds significantly (p<0.05) inhibited the uptake of both Pi and AMG. In the presence of 5-10 mM succinate the ATP content of the renal cells increased by 40% (p<0.02). Inhibition of succinate-induced gluconeogenesis by 3-mercaptopicolinic acid did not modify the inhibition of Pi uptake. Studies with renal brush border membrane vesicles showed that succinate inhibited Pi uptake at 15 and 60s but not at 1 s and only under conditions of Na gradient (outside>inside). Succinate did not inhibit Pi uptake during Na equilibrium conditions. The data demonstrate that the succinate-induced inhibition of the Pi uptake by intact proximal renal cells is not due to competition for metabolic energy, is not related to stimulation of gluconeogenesis nor due to allosteric interaction between Pi carrier and succinate transporter. The results support the notion that the inhibition of Pi uptake by succinate in the intact renal cell is due to dissipation of the Na chemical gradient.
