Ciliated airway epithelial cells are subject to sustained changes in intracellular CO(2)/HCO(3)(-) during exacerbations of airway diseases, but the role of CO(2)/HCO(3)(-)-sensitive soluble adenylyl cyclase (sAC) in ciliary beat regulation is unknown. We now show not only sAC expression in human airway epithelia (by RT-PCR, Western blotting, and(More)
Thyroglobulin (Tg) binds to cell surfaces through various binding sites of high, moderate and low affinity. We have previously shown that binding with low to moderate affinity is pH dependent, selective, but not tissue specific. To identify the regions of Tg involved in this cell surface binding, we studied the binding of (125)I-labeled cyanogen bromide(More)
In porcine thyroid cells, thyroglobulin sulfation is controlled by thyrotropin (TSH) and iodide, which contribute to regulating the intracellular sulfate concentration, as we previously established. Here, we studied the transport of sulfate and its regulation by these two effectors. Kinetic studies were performed after [(35)S]sulfate was added to either the(More)
