Volume regulation of nonperfused rabbit cortical collecting tubules in anisotonic bathing media was examined in vitro. When media osmolality is abruptly increased by 150 mosmol/kgH2O with the addition of NaCl, tubules shrink by 20% but do not volume regulate. However, volume regulatory increase (VRI) is observed when 1 mM butyrate is present in the bathing media or when tubules are pretreated with hypotonic media. When media osmolality is increased, butyrate-treated tubules shrink to 74% of their isotonic control volume. As evidence of volume regulation, butyrate-treated tubules swell while still bathed in hypertonic media, recovering in 30 min 78% of the volume lost due to osmotic shrinkage. The butyrate effect requires external Na+ and is inhibited by amiloride. When media osmolality is lowered to 150 mosmol/kgH2O, nonbutyrate tubules swell before showing typical volume regulatory decrease. When these tubules are returned to isotonic media, they immediately shrink to 78% of control volume before showing evidence of VRI. These results suggest that, under the appropriate conditions, cortical collecting tubules are capable of VRI.
