Pendrin is an anion exchanger expressed along the apical plasma membrane and apical cytoplasmic vesicles of type B and of non-A, non-B intercalated cells of the distal convoluted tubule, connecting tubule, and cortical collecting duct. Thus, Pds (Slc26a4) is a candidate gene for the putative apical anion-exchange process of the type B intercalated cell.(More)
Slc26a4 (Pds, pendrin) is an anion transporter expressed in the apical region of type B and non-A, non-B intercalated cells of the distal nephron. It is upregulated by aldosterone analogues and is critical in the development of mineralocorticoid-induced hypertension. Thus, Slc26a4 expression and its role in blood pressure and fluid and electrolyte(More)
In rat outer medullary collecting duct (OMCD), the mechanism(s) and regulation of H+ secretion are not understood fully. The effect of changes in acid-base balance and the renin-angiotensin system on net H+ secretion was explored. Rats received NaCl, NaHCO3, NH4Cl, or nothing in their drinking water for 7 days. Total ammonia and total CO2 (JtCO2) fluxes(More)
