Role of NBC1 in apical and basolateral HCO3- permeabilities and transendothelial HCO3- fluxes in bovine corneal endothelium.


Corneal transparency and hydration control are dependent on HCO(3)(-) transport properties of the corneal endothelium. Recent work (13) suggested the presence of an apical 1Na(+)-3HCO(3)(-) cotransporter (NBC1) in addition to a basolateral 1Na(+)-2HCO(3)(-) cotransporter. We examined whether the NBC1 cotransporter contributes significantly to basolateral or… (More)
