The products of the Slc12a1 and Slc12a2 genes, commonly known as Na(+)-dependent K(+)2Cl(-) co-transporters NKCC2 and NKCC1, respectively, are the targets for the diuretic bumetanide. NKCCs are implicated in the regulation of intracellular chloride concentration ([Cl(-)]i) in pancreatic β-cells, and as such, they may play a role in glucose-stimulated plasma(More)
Intracellular chloride concentration ([Cl-]i) in pancreatic β-cells is kept above electrochemical equilibrium due to the predominant functional presence of Cl- loaders such as the Na+K+2Cl- co-transporter 1 (Slc12a2) over Cl-extruders of unidentified nature. Using molecular cloning, RT-PCR, Western blotting, immunolocalization and in vitro functional(More)
