Title: Renal handling of terephthalic acid

Abstract

By use of the Sperber in vivo chicken preparation method, infusion of radiolabeled terephthalic acid ((/sup 14/C)TPA) into the renal portal circulation revealed a first-pass excretion of the unchanged compound into the urine. This model was utilized further to characterize the excretory transport of (/sup 14/C)TPA and provide information on the structural specificity in the secretion of dicarboxylic acids. At an infusion rate of 0.4 nmol/min. 60% of the (/sup 14/C)TPA which reached the kidney was directly excreted. An infusion rate of 3 or 6 mumol/min resulted in complete removal of (/sup 14/C)TPA by the kidney. These results indicate that TPA is both actively secreted and actively reabsorbed when infused at 0.4 nmol/min and that active reabsorption is saturated with the infusion of TPA at higher concentrations. The secretory process was saturated with the infusion of TPA at 40 mumol/mn. The excretory transport of TPA was inhibited by the infusion of probenecid, salicylate, and m-hydroxybenzoic acid, indicating that these organic acids share the same organic anion excretory transport process. m-Hydroxybenzoic acid did not alter the simultaneously measured excretory transport of p-aminohippuric acid (PAH), suggesting that there are different systems involved in the secretion of TPA and PAH. The structural specificitymore » for renal secretion of dicarboxylic acids was revealed by the use of o-phthalic acid and m-phthalic acid as possible inhibitors of TPA secretion.« less

  • With the coordination of dimethylformamide (DMF), two new uranium(VI) complexes with either 4-hydroxybenzoic acid (H{sub 2}phb) or terephthalic acid (H{sub 2}tph) have been synthesized under solvothermal conditions and structurally characterized. [(UO{sub 2}){sub 2}(Hphb){sub 2}(phb)(DMF)(H{sub 2}O){sub 3}]·4H{sub 2}O (1) has a dinuclear structure constructed with both pentagonal and hexagonal bipyramidal uranium polyhedra linked through a µ{sub 2}-bridging ligand via both chelating carboxylate arm and alcohol oxygen bonding, first observation of such a coordination mode of 4-hydroxybenzoate for 5 f ions. [(UO{sub 2})(tph)(DMF)] (2) has a three-dimensional (3D) framework built with pentagonal bipyramidal uranium polyhedra linked with µ{sub 4}-terephthalate ligands. The 3Dmore » channeled structure is facilitated by the unique carboxylate bonding with nearly linear C–O–U angles and the coordination of DMF molecules. The presence of phb ligands in different coordination modes, uranyl ions in diverse environments and DMF in complex 1, and tph ligand, DMF and uranyl ion in complex 2 has been confirmed by Raman spectroscopy. In addition, their thermal stability and photoluminescence properties have been investigated. - Graphical abstract: With the coordination of dimethylformamide, two new uranyl complexes with either 4-hydroxybenzoate or terephthalate have been synthesized under solvothermal conditions and structurally characterized. - Highlights: • Solvent facilitates the synthesis of two new uranium(VI) complexes. • A dinuclear complex with both penta- and hexagonal bipyramidal uranium polyhedral. • A unique µ{sub 2}-bridging mode of 4-hydroxybenzoate via alcohol oxygen for 5 f ions. • A 3D framework with uranium polyhedra and µ{sub 4}-terephthalate ligands. • Vibration modes and photoluminescence properties are reported.« less
  • Methods of optimizing quantitative renal imaging with Tc-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) were investigated. Rats were injected with DMSA (one kit per rat) and sacrificed at 0.5, 2.0, and 24 hr after injection. Fifty percent of the injected dose localized in the kidneys at 0.5, 2, and 24 hr after injection while background activity peaked at 0.5 hr and then declined to give substantially higher kidney-to-background ratios at 24 hr. Delayed scanning should increase the accuracy of clinical studies in patients with low kidney-to-background ratios at 1 to 2 hr. After injection of DMSA, 1 ml of air was introduced intomore » the reaction vials and incubated 20 min. Kidney uptake decreased from 50 to 40% and liver uptake increased from 7.5 to 17%. If multiple doses must be drawn from a single vial, air should not be introduced, and the doses should be drawn together and administered immediately to minimize radiopharmaceutical deterioration.« less
  • Four amino acids--alanine, 2,3-diaminopropionic acid, cystine, and cystein--and also one diamine, ethylenediamine, were chelated with /sup 99m/-technetium (/sup 99m/Tc), and their renal excretion patterns were studied in rabbits in the presence and absence of two renal tubular transport inhibitors, probenecid and 2,4-dinitrophenol. From the depression of renal excretion for the first three amino acid chelates, in the presence of the inhibitors, a renal tubular excretory pathway of elimination was suggested for these compounds. The renal excretions of /sup 99m/Tc-cystein and /sup 99m/Tc-ethylenediamine however, remained undepressed under similar experimental conditions. An explanation of these observations was forwarded from the possible chemicalmore » structures of these chelates.« less
