For August we are highlighting a paper by Raheev Rohatgi and co-workers entitled “Flow induced prostaglandin E2 release regulates Na and K transport in the collecting duct”. Listen along as Dr. Rohatgi and Editor-in-Chief Tom Kleyman discuss the role of tubular flow in activating phospholipase A2 and excretion of PGE2, and the role of PGE2 in regulating ion transport in collecting ducts.
