Volume-dependent anion channels permeable for Cl- and amino acids are thought to play an important role in the homeostasis of cell volume. Astrocytes are the main cell type in the mammalian brain showing volume perturbations under physiological and pathophysiological conditions. We investigated the involvement of tyrosine phosphorylation in hyposmotic medium-induced [3H]taurine andd-[3H]aspartate release from primary astrocyte cultures. The tyrosine kinase inhibitors tyrphostin 23 and… CONTINUE READING
