The tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) mechanism modulates renal hemodynamics and glomerular filtration rate in individual nephrons. Our study aimed to evaluate the TGF-induced vascular responses by inhibiting Na-K-2Cl co-transporters and sodium-glucose co-transporters in rats. We assessed cortical hemodynamics with high-resolution laser speckle contrast imaging, which enabled the evaluation of blood flow in individual microvessels and analysis of their dynamical patterns in the time-frequency domain. We demonstrated that a systemic administration of furosemide abolishes TGF-mediated hemodynamic responses. Furthermore, we showed that the local microcirculatory blood flow decreased, and the TGF-induced hemodynamic oscillations were sustained but weakened after inhibiting sodium-glucose co-transporters in Sprague-Dawley rats.
