Effect of cytoplasmic acidification on the membrane potential of T-lymphocytes: Role of trace metals


The effect of lowering intracellular pH on the membrane potential (E m ) of rat thymic lymphocytes was studied using the potential-sensitive dyebis-oxonol. Cells were acid loaded by addition of the electroneutral K+/H+ exchanging ionophore nigericin. Acidification to pH 6.3 in Na+-free solution resulted in a biphasic change inE m : an early transient… (More)
