Continuous pathways must pierce the cell membrane to be used by water during osmotic equilibration between proximal straight tubular cells and the external medium, because a) the water osmotic permeability coefficient of the basolateral plasma membrane,P os cb , is high; b) its activation energy,E a, is as that of free water movement and c) pCMBS inhibits markedly (but reversibly)P os cb and increasesE a to values similar to those observed in lipid bilayers without pores. d) Preliminary… CONTINUE READING
