Fluid secretion is essential for intestinal function and, in eutherian mammals, is driven by electrogenic Cl(-) transport, which is dependent upon a bumetanide-sensitive, basolateral Na(+)/K(+)/2 Cl(-) cotransporter, NKCC1. However, ileal secretion in the brushtail possum, a marsupial, involves a fundamentally different process, since NKCC1 expression is(More)

The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity, adopted under the auspices of the Convention on Biological Diversity, provides the basis for taking effective action to curb biodiversity loss across the planet by 2020-an urgent imperative. Yet, Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, which encompass 10% of the planet's surface, are excluded from assessments of progress(More)
The colon of the brushtail possum does not have an electrogenic secretory response. Given the functional significance of electrogenic Cl(-) secretion in the intestine of eutherian mammals, we have investigated the secretory response in the small intestine of this marsupial. In the Ussing chamber cAMP-dependent secretagogues stimulated a sustained increase(More)
