N2 - In bilateral ureteral obstruction, both aquaporin-2 (AQP2) levels and urinary concentrating capacity are markedly reduced. However, the mechanisms involved in AQP2 downregulation are unknown. In rats with unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) the relative role of intrarenal and systemic factors can be evaluated. Semiquantitative immunoblotting revealed a marked decrease in AQP2 in obstructed kidneys to 23 +/- 7% (n = 9) of sham levels. This downregulation persisted 24 h after release of UUO. Furthermore, there was a significant but less extensive downregulation of AQP2 in the nonobstructed kidneys to 75 +/- 7% (n = 9) of sham levels.
