Over the last decade, several cotransport studies have led to the proposal of secondary active transport of water, challenging the dogma that all water transport is passive. The major observation leading to this interpretation was that a Na+ influx failed to reproduce the large and rapid cell swelling induced by Na+/solute cotransport. We have investigated(More)
Historically, water transport across biological membranes has always been considered a passive process, i.e., the net water transport is proportional to the gradients of hydrostatic and osmotic pressure. More recently, this dogma was challenged by the suggestion that secondary active transporters such as the Na/glucose cotransporter (SGLT1) could perform(More)
