Regional distribution of endothelin 1 (ET-1) levels in the kidney of control rats and rats with galactosamine (GalN) induced liver/renal failure

Kidney regionControl (n=6) (pmol/g)GalN (n=6) (pmol/g)
Values are mean (SEM) values/g of wet tissue.
There were no significant differences between the two groups although there were clearly regional differences in the formation of ET-1.
