Example text

The kidneys regulate plasma [HCO3–] through three main processes: (1) “reabsorption” of filtered HCO3–, (2) formation of titratable acid, and (3) excretion of NH4+ in the urine. The kidney filters ~4000 mmol of HCO3– per day. To reabsorb the filtered load of HCO3–, the renal tubules must therefore secrete 4000 mmol of hydrogen ions. Between 80 and 90% of HCO3– is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule. The distal nephron reabsorbs the remainder and secretes protons, as generated from metabolism, to defend systemic pH.
