Elliott P, Marmot M, 1984, International studies of salt and blood pressure., Ann Clin Res, Vol: 16 Suppl 43, Pages: 67-71, ISSN: 0003-4762
Comparing the distributions of blood pressure in different populations it has been found that the log-normal distribution gave the best summary of the data. The geometric mean and the coefficient of variation of the underlying blood pressure distribution were the most informative statistics. Using this blood pressure distribution, a model is discussed for the change in blood pressure with age and between populations. These changes are consistent with an environmental factor, such as salt intake, affecting the position of the mean of the blood pressure distribution and with a gradient of susceptibility within a population.
Williams GR, Nicholson JK, 1983, The histology and fine structure of the ureter of the European starling (Sturnus vulgaris), Journal of Anatomy, Vol: 136, Pages: 585-594, ISSN: 0021-8782
Light and electron microscopic techniques were employed to study the structure of the ureter of the starling (Sturnus vulgaris). Particular attention was paid to the characterisation of the epithelial cell types. Differences were found in the chemical composition of the mucins found in the ureteric epithelial cells and the medullary collecting ducts, which suggested that they might perform different functions. The epithelial cells were of two main types. The basally situated cells were electron-lucent, apparently relatively undifferentiated, and contained little rough endoplasmic reticulum or mucigen. The cells which were directly adjacent to the lumen were highly specialised for mucus secretion and contained extensive rough endoplasmic reticulum and large numbers of mucigen-containing vacuoles. Cells of intermediate character were also observed and the relationships between the epithelial cell types were discussed. The possibility of a holocrine mode of mucus secretion in the avarian ureteric epithelium was discussed.
Nicholson JK, Kendall MD, 1983, The fine structure of dark or intercalated cells from the distal and collecting tubules of avian kidneys, Journal of Anatomy, Vol: 136, Pages: 145-156, ISSN: 0021-8782
Dark or intercalated cells were identified in the terminal portion of the distal tubules and in the intralobular collecting tubules of four species of birds. The morphological features of these cells varied only slightly from species to species and were very similar to cells found in topographically analogous regions of mammalian nephrons. Characteristic vesicles usually filled the apical region of the dark cells and were often in direct continuity with the apical plasma membrane which was frequently thrown into elaborate folds, microvilli and microplicae. Observations suggested that the cells might be involved in some form of cyclical secretory activity. The similarity in structure between avian and mammalian dark cells suggested that they might perform similar functions and that the study of avian cells might aid the elucidation of the mammalian cell function. The possible function of the avian cells were discussed in relation to physiological studies in mammalian kidneys and it was suggested that they might be involved with proton and potassium pumping and control of urinary buffer concentrations.

NICHOLSON JK, OSBORN D, 1983, Kidney lesions in pelagic seabirds with high tissue levels of cadmium and mercury, Journal of Zoology, Vol: 200, Pages: 99-118, ISSN: 0952-8369
Light and electron microscopic techniques were employed to examine the kidneys of three species of pelagic seabird which had high tissue cadmium and mercury levels. Direct examination and comparison with the kidneys of cadmium and mercury dosed starlings showed that the seabirds had patchy nephrotoxic kidney lesions. It was suggested that these lesions were due to natural exposure of the animals to high levels of metals, particularly cadmium through their diet. Pathological features included necrosis and degeneration of the proximal tubular epithelium together with the direct observation of obstruction of the more distal neprhon segments by necrotic cellular debris. Abnormalities of the glomerular podocytes and Bowman's capsule cells were also observed. There was a high degree of similarity between the type and distribution of kidney lesions in the seabirds and the laboratory metal dosed starlings. The significance of this kidney damage and its possible effects on the birds survival prospects are discussed. Copyright © 1983, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved

Nicholson JK, 1982, The microanatomy of the distal tubules, collecting tubules and collecting ducts of the starling kidney, Journal of Anatomy, Vol: 134, Pages: 11-23, ISSN: 0021-8782
Light and electron microscopic techniques were employed to characterise the various cell types found in the distal tubules, collecting tubules and collecting ducts in the kidneys of wild starlings (Sturnus vulgaris). There was a gradual change in cell characteristics along the length of the distal tubule. A short transition zone was identified, between the distal tubule and the intralobular collecting tubule, which contained cell types that were characteristic of both segments. The end of the distal tubule was marked by the appearance of scattered dark cells and occasional mucin-secreting cells. The dark cells were electron-dense and usually possessed many microvesicles in the subapical region; there were also numerous, stubby apical microprocesses in many cases. In the basal regions of these cells were many short, regular infoldings of the plasma membrane. The initial part of the intralobular collecting tubule was lined by approximately equal numbers of dark and mucin-secreting cells. However, as the tubule progressed towards the lobular periphery, the number of dark cells declined. Few dark cells were observed in the perilobular collecting ducts and none in the medullary ducts which were lined by columnar mucin-secreting cells. The mucin-secreting cells possessed a prominent supranuclear Golgi apparatus and apical vacuoles containing a strongly PAS- and alcian blue-positive mucigen. Critical electrolyte concentration methods, using alcian blue in the presence of magnesium chloride, indicated that the mucigen contained large amounts of a strongly sulphated component, but was probably of a mixed nature. The dark cells were slightly PAS-positive but only very weakly blue-positive at the cell apices. The roles of the various cell types were discussed in relation to the uric acid excretion habit of birds.
