Na(+)-dependent and -independent Cl-/HCO-3 exchange mediate cellular HCO3- transport in cultured human intrahepatic bile duct cells.


Biliary epithelial cells (cholangiocytes) modulate bile fluidity and alkalinity absorbing and/or secreting fluid and electrolytes, particularly HCO3- and Cl-. Mechanisms responsible for transepithelial H+/HCO3- secretion in human cholangiocytes are largely unknown. Human cholangiocytes isolated by enzymatic digestion and immunomagnetic purification from… (More)
