Assessment of evidence for K+-H+ exchange in isolated type-1 cells of neonatal rat carotid body


 Intracellular pH (pHi) was measured in enzymically isolated, neonatal rat carotid body type-1 cells, using the fluorophore carboxy-SNARF-1 (AM-loaded), and using the nigericin technique for in situ fluorescence calibration (nigericin is a membrane-soluble K+-H+ exchanger). In CO2/HCO3 –-free media, inhibiting Na+-H+ exchange produced a prompt fall of pHi… (More)
