In acute uremic rats (24 h after bilateral nephrectomy, serum urea 280-300 mg/dl) the interface tension of the serum is significantly reduced. Serum levels of triacylglycerol are significantly elevated in uremia, whereas cholesterol levels do not show a significant alteration. The in vitro serum binding reserve for both, triacylglycerol and cholesterol is considerably enhanced. These results let suppose the presence of tenside-like substances in uremic serum which may be involved in disturbed triacylglycerol transport from the serum to the tissues and in development of uremic hypertriglyceridemia. © 1985, All rights reserved.
