Amiloride-induced stimulation of HCO-3 reabsorption in turtle bladder.

Amiloride in the mucosal fluid (at concentrations of 5 . 10(-6) M to 10(-4) M) reversibly stimulates the HCO-3-dependent moiety of the short-circuiting current (Isc) in ouabain-treated turtle bladders bathed by Na-free Ringer solutions with or without Cl-. This effect is uniquely different from the known inhibitory effect of this agent on Na+ transport… CONTINUE READING
