The existence of a furosemide-sensitive Cl- transport pathway activated by external Ca2+ and Mg2+ has been demonstrated previously in studies of Cl- influx across the lamprey erythrocyte membrane. The aim of the present study was to characterize further specific Cl- transport pathways, especially those involved in Cl- efflux, in the red blood cell membrane of Lampetra fluviatilis. Cl- efflux was inhibited by 0.05 mmol l-1 dihydroindenyloxyalkanoic acid (DIOA) (81 %), 1 mmol l-1 furosemide (76…

Homeostasis of Sodium and Potassium Ions in Erythrocytes of the Lamprey Lampetra fluviatilis: Effect of Ion Transport and Metabolic Blockers, and Ionophores
An important role of oxidative metabolism in the monovalent ion homeostasis in the lamprey red blood cells is indicated, which can be suggested by a cell acidification and Na+/H+ exchange activation.
Kinetic properties of sodium transport pathways in the river lamprey Lampetra fluviatilis erythrocytes
The obtained results indicate the presence in lamprey erythrocytes of only binding site for H+ from the cytoplasm side and the presence of positive cooperativity in Na+-binding from the extracellular side of the Na+/H+ exchanger.


Regulatory volume decrease in lamprey erythrocytes: mechanisms of K+ and Cl- loss.
The finding that substitution of NO3- or SCN- for Cl- had only a minor effect on the swelling-induced net extrusion of K- and water indicate that the pathways for K+ and Cl-, activated by cell swelling, are conductive.

The characteristics of K+ transport in erythrocytes from the river lamprey (Lampetra fluviatilis) were investigated and a role for intracellular Ca2+ in the operation of the pathway was suggested.

Demonstration of a [K+,Cl-]-cotransport system in human red cells by its sensitivity to [(dihydroindenyl)oxy]alkanoic acids: regulation of cell swelling and distinction from the bumetanide-sensitive [Na+,K+,Cl-]-cotransport system.
The above properties of DIOA-sensitive K+ efflux clearly confirm that human red cells have a [K+,Cl-]-cotransport system that regulates cell swelling and is probably transduced by the cytoskeleton.

Hagfish (Eptatretus stouti) erythrocytes show minimal chloride transport activity.
It is demonstrated that, in contrast to the situation in all other vertebrate species studied except the lamprey, capnophorin activity in hagfish red cells is very limited, amounting to only 40;UmolCl~ transported 1 cells"' min" at 11°C, the environmental temperature of this species.
