Abstract

In vitro proximal tubular transport of para-aminohippurate (PAH) and N-methylnicotinamide (NMN) was determined in 4 human kidneys which had been preserved in cold Collins 2 solution for a mean of 37.8 hours but could not be utilized for transplantation. All 4 kidneys actively transported PAH and three fourths transported NMN. These results show that the proximal tubules of Collins 2-preserved kidneys retain substantial ability for active transport of organic compounds.
