Abstract

Sodium-lithium countertransport (SLC), sodium-potassium cotransport (CoT), and ouabain binding to sodium-potassium adenosine triphosphatase (Na, K-ATPase) sites were measured on fresh erythrocytes from hypertensive and normotensive Utah subjects with and without a firstdegree relative with hypertension. SLC was measured as Li+ efflux into NaCl and MgCl2 media from Li + -loaded cells (5-7 mM). CoT was measured by monitoring Na+ and K+ efflux from cells loaded to 20-30 mM Na+ and 20-30 mM K+. Ouabain binding was determined for fresh cells using JH-ouabain. Subjects were selected from pedigrees that showed a prevalence of hypertension. SLC was significantly elevated in 26.5% of the hypertensive subjects (p < 0.001) as well as in 12.8% of the normotensives with a hypertensive first-degree relative (p < 0.05). Although elevated SLC and decreased CoT have previously been associated with hypertension, no hypertensive subject in this study exhibited both abnormalities. All subjects with elevated SLC had normal CoT. A positive correlation between SLC and CoT was observed. Few hypertensive subjects (11.8%) had decreased CoT. In the majority of subjects studied, both SLC and CoT were normal: hypertensives 61.8%, normotensives with a hypertensive first-degree relative 61.7%, and other normotensives 58.7%. The number of ouabainbinding sites was not significantly altered among hypertensives, or their relatives, even though there was a positive correlation between SLC and the number of ouabain-binding sites.
