Fluid and HCO(3)(-) secretion is a vital function of all epithelia and is required for the survival of the tissue. Aberrant fluid and HCO(3)(-) secretion is associated with many epithelial diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, pancreatitis, Sjögren's syndrome, and other epithelial inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Significant progress has been made over(More)
Members of the SLC26 family of anion transporters mediate the transport of diverse molecules ranging from halides to carboxylic acids and can function as coupled transporters or as channels. A unique feature of the two members of the family, Slc26a3 and Slc26a6, is that they can function as both obligate coupled and mediate an uncoupled current, in a(More)
Zinc influx, driven by a steep inward electrochemical gradient, plays a fundamental role in zinc signaling and in pathophysiologies linked to intracellular accumulation of toxic zinc. Yet, the cellular transport mechanisms that actively generate or maintain the transmembrane gradients are not well understood. We monitored Na+-dependent Zn2+ transport in(More)
