The recently cloned, non-erythrocyte Rh glycoproteins (Rhbg and Rhcg) are expressed in the intercalated cells of the renal collecting duct. The apical Rhcg and the basolateral Rhbg are likely involved in NH3 and/or NH4+ transport, yet the characteristics of this transport are not yet certain. In this study we investigated the mechanism of NH4+ transport by Rhbg and Rhcg expressed in Xenopus oocytes. We used a two-electrode voltage-clamp and ion-selective microelectrodes to measure NH4+-induced… CONTINUE READING
