Abstract

The present review focuses on the ontogeny of mechanisms involved in renal sodium excretion during renal maturation. The effect of birth on renal excretion of sodium and the role played by the different tubular segments in the regulation of sodium excretion during maturation are discussed. The influence of circulating catecholamines and renal sympathetic innervation in regulating sodium excretion during renal development is reviewed. The effects of aldosterone, atrial natriuretic factor, and prostaglandins on sodium regulation during renal maturation are discussed. Special emphasis is given to the potential role of glucocorticoids in modulating sodium excretion early in life.
