Regulatory volume decrease (RVD) in detached cerebellar astrocytes in culture after acute exposure to hyposmolarity was characterized in this and the accompanying paper [H. Pasantes-Morales, R. A. Murray, R. Sanches-Olea, and J. Moran. Am. J. Physiol. 266 (Cell Physiol. 35): C172-C178, 1994]. RVD was independent of extracellular calcium, was accelerated at pH 8-9 and retarded at pH 6, and was reduced at temperatures < 18 degrees C. The cationic pathway activated by hyposmolarity was specific… CONTINUE READING
