Activation of CFTR Cl(-) channel by tyrphostins via a protein tyrosine kinase-independent pathway in forskolin-stimulated renal epithelial A6 cells.

We studied effects of tyrphostin A23 (an inhibitor of protein tyrosine kinase; PTK) and tyrphostin A63 (an inactive analog of tyrphostin A23) on forskolin-activated cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) Cl(-) channels and Cl(-) secretion in renal epithelial A6 cells. Tyrphostin A23 and A63 had no effects on the basal CFTR Cl(-) channel… (More)
