A component of K efflux (86Rb as tracer) from rat femoral arterial smooth muscle was blocked by loop diuretics. Following hypertonic challenge with 100 mM-sucrose, K efflux increased but not in the presence of loop diuretics. This is taken as evidence for a volume regulatory increase mediated by Na-K-Cl co-transport.
