Endothelin-1 inhibits collecting duct sodium reabsorption and stimulates proximal and distal tubule acidification in experimental animals both directly and indirectly via increased mineralocorticoid activity. Diet-induced acid loads have been shown to increase renal endothelin-1 activity, and it is hypothesized that increased dietary acid-induced endothelin-1 activity may be a causative progression factor in human renal insufficiency and that this might be reversed by provision of dietary alkali. We sought to clarify, in normal human volunteers, the role of endothelin-1 in renal acidification and to determine whether the effect is dependent on dietary sodium chloride. Acid-base equilibrium was studied in seven normal human volunteers with experimentally induced metabolic acidosis [NH(4)Cl 2.1 mmol·kg body weight (BW)(-1)·day(-1)] with and without inhibition of endogenous endothelin-1 activity by the endothelin A/B-receptor antagonist bosentan (125 BID p.o./day) both during dietary NaCl restriction (20 mmol/day) and NaCl repletion (2 mmol NaCl·kg BW(-1)·day(-1)). During NaCl restriction, but not in the NaCl replete state, bosentan significantly increased renal net acid excretion in association with stimulation of ammoniagenesis resulting in a significantly increased plasma bicarbonate concentration (19.0 ± 0.8 to 20.1 ± 0.9 mmol/l) despite a decrease in mineralocorticoid activity and an increase in endogenous acid production. In pre-existing human metabolic acidosis, endothelin-1 activity worsens acidosis by decreasing the set-point for renal regulation of plasma bicarbonate concentration, but only when dietary NaCl provision is restricted.
