To elucidate the role of epithelial sodium channels (ENaCs) and Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase in Na(+) transport by the choroid plexus, we studied ENaC expression and Na(+) transport in the choroid plexus. Lateral ventricle choroid plexuses were obtained from young male Wistar, Dahl salt-resistant (SS.BN13), and Dahl salt-sensitive (SS/MCW) rats on a regular (0.3%) or high- (8.0%) salt diet. The effects of ENaC blocker benzamil and Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase blocker ouabain on sodium transport were evaluated by… CONTINUE READING
