Coincident with an increase in water permeability, the ridge-like surface structures of toad bladder granular cells transform to individual microvilli after stimulation with vasopressin (VP) or cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) by a mechanism that is yet to be defined. To explore the possible role of microtubules and microfilaments in this cell response, colchicine and cytochalasin B were employed to determine whether interference with the function of these components of the cytoskeletal… CONTINUE READING
