Microperfusion experiments with Na+-free and/or K+-free solutions revealed that the generation of Cl- -dependent lumen-positive transtubular potentials of the early distal tubule of Triturus kidney was absolutely dependent on the presence of both Na+ and K+ in the lumen. Increases in luminal Na+ or K+ concentration increased the luminal positivity in a saturable manner, and the half saturation concentration was found to be about 1 mM for both cations. The results strongly suggest that Cl- is cotransported with Na+ and K+ across the luminal membrane.
