Regulation of Na,K-ATPase during acute lung injury.


A hallmark of acute lung injury is the accumulation of a protein rich edema which impairs gas exchange and leads to hypoxemia. The resolution of lung edema is effected by active sodium transport, mostly contributed by apical Na(+) channels and the basolateral located Na,K-ATPase. It has been reported that the decrease of Na,K-ATPase function seen during… (More)
