K-Cl cotransport plays a crucial role in regulatory volume decrease of erythrocytes. K-Cl cotransport activities in dog erythrocytes with an inherited high Na-K pump activity (HK) and normal erythrocytes (LK) were compared. Nitrite (NO(2)) stimulated K-Cl cotransport activity in HK cells around 14-fold at 2.4 mM, and it also increased the Km value of this… CONTINUE READING
