Several transporting epithelia in vertebrates and invertebrates contain cells that are specialized for proton or bicarbonate secretion. These characteristic 'mitochondria-rich' (MR) cells have several typical features, the most important of which is an extremely high expression of a vacuolar-type proton-pumping ATPase (H+V-ATPase) both on intracellular vesicles and on specific domains of their plasma membrane. Physiological modulation of proton secretion is achieved by recycling the H+V-ATPase… CONTINUE READING
