Effects of osmotic stresses on isolated rat hepatocytes. II. Modulation of intracellular pH.


To assess the roles of acid-base transport systems in cell volume regulation in rat hepatocytes, intracellular pH (pHi) was measured in subconfluent monolayers loaded with 2'-7'-bis(carboxyethyl)-5,6-carboxyfluorescein (BCECF) after exposure to hypotonic and relative hypertonic media, interventions that stimulate regulatory volume decrease (RVD) and… (More)
