Na-K-Cl cotransport in the shark rectal gland. I. Regulation in the intact perfused gland.

To investigate regulation of the Na-K-Cl cotransport system in the rectal gland of the dogfish shark Squalus acanthias, we examined binding of the loop diuretic [3H]benzmetanide to the intact gland. Glands were perfused with a shark Ringer solution, either in a basal state or stimulated with vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP). [3H]benzmetanide was added to… CONTINUE READING
