Abstract

Fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry was used to characterize phospholipids from tubuli and glomeruli of normal rats and rats with acute renal failure. It was possible to assess the molecular species of the principal phospholipidic classes. In all of them, the most abundant species contained a residue of arachidonic acid. The phospholipids of urine were also analyzed, showing the presence of the major molecular species of several phospholipid classes. Excretion of phospholipids was greater in urine from rats with acute renal failure.
