Purines and the control of renal function
The manner in which the kidney controls the level of purine end-products circulating in body-fluids has been described in Chapter 4. In this chapter we will examine the reverse process: the current concepts relating to the putative role of purines in the control of renal function, specifically adenosine and — through the GTP-binding regulatory protein — cyclic AMP.
