The present investigation compares brush-border (BBM) and basolateral membrane (BLM) vesicles in terms of purity, function, appearance on sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) gels, and labeling pattern by use of N-(4-azido-2-nitrophenyl)-2-aminoethanesulfonic acid (NAP-taurine), a photoaffinity analogue of p-aminohippurate (PAH). Both BLM and BBM were vesicular by(More)
The in situ assembly state of the (Na+,K+)-pump ATPase of human erythrocytes was studied by applying the classical target theory to radiation inactivation data of the ouabain-sensitive sodium efflux and ATP hydrolysis. Erythrocytes and their extensively washed white ghosts were irradiated at -45 to -50 degrees C with an increasing dose of 1.5-MeV electron(More)
The effect of ethanol on the transport of organic ions in rabbit kidney cortical slices was studied. Ethanol at a concentration of 4 to 10% (v/v) reversibly inhibited the slice uptake of the organic anion, p-aminohippurate (PAH), in a dose-dependent manner, but had no significant effect on that of the organic cation, tetraethylammonium (TEA). Overall, the(More)
The effect of SITS (4-acetamido-4'-isothiocyano-2,2'-disulfonic stilbene) on the transport of organic ions in the rabbit kidney cortical slice was studied. SITS at a concentration of 10(-4) to 10(-3) M significantly decreased the slice-to-medium (S/M) concentration ratio of the organic anions p-aminohippurate (PAH), and 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetate, but(More)
Two stilbene derivates that had been used to covalently label the Cl- carrier in the erythrocyte were investigated for reactivity with the renal organic anion system. These compounds, 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonate (DIDS) and (4,4'-diisothiocyano)-dihydrostilbene-2,2'-disulfonate (H2DIDS), were found to be potent inhibitors (Ki congruent to 35(More)
The present work was carried out to investigate if gossypol, a toxic weak organic acid (pK = 7.2) contained in cottonseed, is secreted by the renal proximal tubule through the organic anion transport system in the rabbit. The slice uptake of p-aminohippurate (PAH), a prototypical organic anion, was significantly inhibited (by 30%) only when the medium(More)
Xenopus oocytes were injected with size-fractionated mRNA isolated from the renal cortex of rabbit kidney and after 4 days incubation, PAH uptake in oocytes injected with mRNA (0.7-1.3 kb) was 8 to 45 fold that of the water injected controls. The oocyte to medium ratio of accumulated PAH was 1.95. The Km and Vmax for transport were 333 microM and 66.6(More)
Organic phosphates and the Donnan ratio (cell to plasma Cl ratio) were measured in man during a dry saturation dive to 31 ATA for 7 d. 2,3-DPG increased significantly with a concomitant decrease in ATP and the molar ratios of ATP and ADP on Day 5 at 31 ATA (P less than 0.05). Inorganic phosphate did not change during the dive. The Donnan ratio was(More)
The in situ state of assembly of the human erythrocyte anion carrier (band 3) has been investigated by applying target size analysis on the radiation-induced inactivation of anion flux and degradation of polypeptide band 3. Irradiation with a high energy electron beam resulted in inactivation of carrier-mediated anion flux in intact cells, in inside-out(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether pretreatment of rabbits with bleomycin would modify their response to 100% O2 and, if so, to identify the mechanism of this action. A single intratracheal injection of bleomycin (5 U/kg) resulted in a transient decrease of the arterial Po2, its mean value (+/- SE) 7 days postinjection being 59 +/- 3 Torr.(More)
