Homocellular regulatory mechanisms in sodium-transporting epithelia: avoidance of extinction by "flush-through".

Abstract

In recent years electrophysiologic studies on several sodium-transporting epithelia have uncovered two "homocellular" (intrinsic) regulatory mechanisms that appear to protect the absorptive cells from marked changes in sodium and potassium content in response to rapid and wide-ranging physiologic variations in the rate of transcellular sodium transport… (More)
