The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is an epithelial Cl- channel regulated by protein kinase A. The most common mutation in cystic fibrosis (CF), deletion of Phe-508 (delta F508-CFTR), reduces Cl- secretion, but the fatal consequences of CF have been difficult to rationalize solely in terms of this defect. The aim of this study(More)
Stimulation-induced changes in Cl- content and O2 consumption of collagenase-isolated rat parotid acini were measured. In less than 10 s, carbachol caused a net Cl- efflux, corresponding to approximately 50% of the Cl- content, and increased the O2 uptake by 100%. The increase was inhibitable by ouabain and was dependent on the presence of extracellular(More)
1. The rate of acetylcholine (ACh)-induced fluid secretion was measured from the main secretory duct of rabbit lacrimal glands perfused in vivo with Krebs Henseleit bicarbonate solutions. 2. Perfusion with ouabain (10(-5) M) decreased the rate of lacrimal gland fluid secretion to 23% of the control value. 3. Perfusion with furosemide (10(-4) and 10(-3) M),(More)
Stimulation-induced transport of K+ in the submandibular salivary gland of cats and dogs anesthetized with pentobarbital was studied with an extracellular K+-specific microelectrode. Electrical stimulation of the para-sympathetic chorda-lingual nerve caused a rapid transient increase in extracellular K+ concentration from 2.2 to 18.7 meq/liter in the cat(More)
Intracellular potassium ion activities (aiK+) and membrane potentials were measured with double-barrelled, potassium-specific microelectrodes in superfused mouse pancreas and submandibular gland. Stimulation with the cholinergic agonist bethanechol caused a marked decrease in aiK+ in the submandibular gland, whereas no change in aiK+ could be detected in(More)
Es wird eine Hemmung der Speichelflussrate in der Submandibularisdrüse der Katze durch den Kohlensäureanhydratasehemmstoff Acetazolamid hervorgerufen und gleichzeitig eine Hemmung der sekretorischen Potentialunterschiede über Azinuszellmembrane gemessen. Die Sekretionshemmung liesse sich durch die Hemmung der sekretorischen Potentiale, die ein Mass für(More)
