Activation of renal glutaminase during administration of NH4C1 does not appear to result from pre-renal effects of the acid load, since physiologically equivalent loads of NaH2P04 produced the same slight depression of serum bicarbonate but affected neither excretion of ammonia nor activity of renal glutaminase. Rather, it appears that activation of glutaminase is related to changes, as yet unidentified, within the kidney.
