A role for the anion exchanger AE1 (band 3 protein) in cell volume regulation.


In response to swelling cells recover their volume by releasing ions (mainly K+, Cl-) and different organic solutes (e.g. taurine) via volume-sensitive pathways. Depending on the cause of swelling (net uptake of electrolytes or decrease in external osmolality) cells use specifically some of these pathways. Previous data indicate that the anion exchanger… (More)
