Effect of hypoxia on the intracellular chloride activity of cultured glomus cells of the rat carotid body.

Abstract

Clusters of rat carotid body glomus cells were cultured for 1 to 12 days. Preparations were exposed to a control PO2 of 134.9 +/- 1.1 torr (mean +/- SE), and an external chloride activity, ao(Cl), of 105.6 +/- 2 mM. Thirty-six cells had a resting potential (Em) of -25.2 +/- 0.9 mV. The intracellular chloride activity, ai(Cl), was 32.8 +/- 1.1 mM, and the… (More)
