Modulation of Ca2+-Activated Cl− Secretion by Basolateral K+ Channels in Human Normal and Cystic Fibrosis Airway Epithelia


Human airway epithelia express Ca2+-activated Cl− channels (CaCC) that are activated by extracellular nucleotides (ATP and UTP). CaCC is preserved and seems to be up-regulated in the airways of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. In the present study, we examined the role of basolateral K+ channels in CaCC-mediated Cl− secretion in native nasal tissues from… (More)
