Previous studies from our laboratory have provided evidence that the rat epididymis utilizes the Na(+)/H(+) exchanger to transport acid and base. The present study was undertaken to use immunohistochemistry for investigating the localization (apical versus basolateral) and distribution of NHE1 and NHE2 proteins along intact rat epididymis. Both proteins were found to be exclusively localized within the epithelium. Immunoreactivity for NHE1 was detected on the basolateral surface, whereas NHE2… CONTINUE READING
