Assessment of swelling-activated Cl- channels using the halide-sensitive fluorescent indicator 6-methoxy-N-(3-sulfopropyl)quinolinium.

This study describes a quantitative analysis of the enhancement in anion permeability through swelling-activated Cl- channels, using the halide-sensitive fluorescent dye 6-methoxy-N-(3-sulfopropyl)quinolinium (SPQ). Cultured bovine corneal endothelial monolayers perfused with NO3- Ringer's were exposed to I- pulses under isosmotic and, subsequently… CONTINUE READING
