Isolated mitochondria-rich (MR) cells from the rainbow trout gill epithelium were subjected to intracellular pH (pH(i)) imaging with the pH-sensitive dye BCECF-AM. MR cells were categorized into two distinct functional subtypes based on their ability to recover pH(i) from an NH(4)Cl-induced acidification in the absence of Na(+). An apparent link between(More)
We have studied intracellular pH (pH(i)) recovery in isolated trout gill mitochondrion-rich (MR) cells following acidification by the NH(4)Cl pre-pulse technique. Within a mixed MR cell population, one cell type displayed Na(+)-independent pH(i) recovery while the other cell type lacked a Na(+)-independent pH(i) recovery. Cells displaying Na(+) independent(More)
BACKGROUND The MS4A gene family in humans includes CD20 (MS4A1), FcRbeta (MS4A2), Htm4 (MS4A3), and at least 13 other syntenic genes encoding membrane proteins, most having characteristic tetraspanning topology. Expression of MS4A genes is variable in tissues throughout the body; however, several are limited to cells in the hematopoietic system where they(More)
The steady-state and kinetic properties of the KCNMB3 regulatory subunits associated with calcium-activated potassium channels (BK channels) are presented. BK channels containing four sequence variants (V1-V4) in the four different isoforms of the beta-subunit (beta3a, beta3b, beta3c, and beta3d) were expressed in Xenopus oocytes. Reconstituted BK channel(More)

The evaluation of engineered nanomaterial safety has been hindered by conflicting reports demonstrating differential degrees of toxicity with the same nanoparticles. The unique properties of these materials increase the likelihood that they will interfere with analytical techniques, which may contribute to this phenomenon. We tested the potential for: 1)(More)
We report the presence of the ion transporting proteins V-H(+)-ATPase, Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase and NHE2 in the gill epithelium of the Pacific hagfish Epatretus stoutii. Heterologous antibodies recognized single bands of the appropriate sizes for the three transporters in western blots. Immunohistochemical staining revealed that the distribution of labeled cells(More)
Epithelial tissue - the sealed and polarized layer of cells that regulates transport of ions and solutes between the environment and the internal milieu - is a defining characteristic of the Eumetazoa. Sponges, the most ancient metazoan phylum, are generally believed to lack true epithelia, but their ability to occlude passage of ions has never been tested.(More)
We have studied Cl(-) transport mechanisms in freshwater rainbow trout gill mitochondrion-rich (MR) cells using intracellular pH (pH(i)) imaging. Scanning electron microscopy demonstrated maintenance of cellular polarity in isolated MR cells. MR cell subtypes were identified by Na(+) introduction to the bath, and Cl(-) transport mechanisms were subsequently(More)
Oxygen (O(2)) is one of the most important environmental factors that affects both physiological processes and development of aerobic animals, yet little is known about the neural mechanism of O(2) sensing and adaptive responses to low O(2) (hypoxia) during development. In the pond snail, Helisoma trivolvis, the first embryonic neurons (ENC1s) to develop(More)
