Ouabain-Induced Cytoplasmic Vesicles and Their Role in Cell Volume Maintenance

Abstract

Cellular swelling is controlled by an active mechanism of cell volume regulation driven by a Na(+)/K(+)-dependent ATPase and by aquaporins which translocate water along the osmotic gradient. Na(+)/K(+)-pump may be blocked by ouabain, a digitalic derivative, by inhibition of ATP, or by drastic ion alterations of extracellular fluid. However, it has been… (More)
