Arachidonic acid as a second messenger for hypotonicity-induced calcium transients in rat IMCD cells


 In rat inner medullary collecting duct (IMCD) cells in primary culture, hypotonic stress induces Ca2+ transients consisting of an early peak phase caused by a Ca2+ release from intracellular stores and a subsequent plateau phase that involves Ca2+ entry from the extracellular milieu. In the present study, the mechanisms by which cell swelling is transduced… (More)
