Abstract Epithelial cells were isolated from adult porcine vas deferens and grown in the absence or presence of steroid hormones. Transepithelial resistance (Rte), basal short circuit current (Isc), and the effects of selected ion transport modulators on these parameters were evaluated in modified Ussing chambers at three time points (5–8, 11–14, and 18–22 days postseeding). At the earliest time point, no significant differences were observed. At the middle time point, when compared with Rte in… 
Adenosine Stimulates Anion Secretion Across Cultured and Native Adult Human Vas Deferens Epithelia1
TLDR
It is demonstrated that adult human vas deferens epithelium actively transports ions to generate the luminal environment of the deferent duct, likely plays an active role in male fertility, and interventions that modulate epithelial function might be exploited to treat male-factor infertility or in contraception.
Testosterone Upregulates Anion Secretion Across Porcine Vas Deferens Epithelia In Vitro1
TLDR
Results suggest that testosterone upregulates epithelial responsiveness to acute modulations of anion secretion (likely bicarbonate secretion), which ultimately modifies the environment to which sperm are exposed.
PVD9902, a porcine vas deferens epithelial cell line that exhibits neurotransmitter-stimulated anion secretion and expresses numerous HCO3(-) transporters.
TLDR
PVD9902 cells recapitulated most observations in freshly isolated cells and thus represent a powerful new tool to characterize mechanisms that contribute to male reproductive function.
Functional and molecular evidence for Na(+)-HCO cotransporter in porcine vas deferens epithelia.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that vas deferens epithelial cells possess the proteins necessary for the vectoral transport of HCO and that these mechanisms are maintained in primary culture and have implications for the understanding of the relationship between cystic fibrosis and congenital bilateral absence of the vasdeferens.
Porcine Vas Deferens Luminal pH Is Acutely Increased by Systemic Xylazine Administration1
TLDR
Results indicate that the boar vas deferens lumen can be alkaline, and they suggest that porcine vasdeferens epithelia increase net bicarbonate secretion in vivo after systemic alpha-2 adrenergic stimulation, which is expected to modulate male fertility.
Regulation of sodium transport across epithelia derived from human mammary gland
TLDR
The results from these projects demonstrate that mammary epithelial cells form electrically tight monolayers and can exhibit neurotransmitterand/or hormone-induced net ion transport, which may provide clues to prevent or treat mastitis.
Porcine Vas Deferens Luminal pH Is Acutely Increased by Systemic Xylazine Administration Short title: Regulation of vas deferens luminal pH Summary sentence: Vas deferens luminal pH is acutely increased by xylazine, an alpha-2 adrenergic receptor agonist.
TLDR
The results indicate that the boar vas deferens lumen can be alkaline, and suggest that porcine vasdeferens epithelia increase net bicarbonate secretion in vivo, following systemic alpha-2 adrenergic stimulation, which is expected to modulate male fertility.
Bicarbonate exchangers SLC26A3 and SLC26A6 are localized at the apical membrane of porcine vas deferens epithelium
TLDR
V vas deferens epithelia express transporters throughout the duct that can contribute to rapid alkalinization of the luminal contents as it has been demonstrated in vivo.
High‐resolution imaging of the actin cytoskeleton and epithelial sodium channel, CFTR, and aquaporin‐9 localization in the vas deferens
TLDR
The localization of all three channels on the apical surface of the columnar epithelial cells provides clear evidence that these channels are involved concurrently in the regulation of fluid and electrolyte balance in the lumen of the vas deferens.

Neurotransmitter-stimulated ion transport by cultured porcine vas deferens epithelium.
TLDR
The culture method described will reliably produce viable neurotransmitter-responsive cell monolayers that will allow for the characterization of vas deferens epithelial function and associated control mechanisms.

TLDR
It is concluded that anion secretion by the epididymis shares common mechanisms with other Cl-secreting epithelia in a dose-dependent manner.
Ovine male genital duct epithelial cells differentiate in vitro and express functional CFTR and ENaC.
TLDR
It is suggested that cultured ovine vas deferens and epididymis cells absorb Na(+) via amiloride-sensitive epithelial Na(+ channels (ENaC) and secrete Cl(-) and HCO(-)(3) via apical cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) Cl(+) channels.
Nongenomic effect of testosterone on chloride secretion in cultured rat efferent duct epithelia.
TLDR
The efferent duct was found to be most sensitive to testosterone, while the caput and the cauda epididymidis were only mildly sensitive, and it is suggested that the rapid effect of testosterone was mediated through a membrane receptor that is negatively coupled to adenylate cyclase via G(i) protein.
Corticosteroid alteration of active electrolyte transport in rat distal colon.
TLDR
These studies demonstrate that 1) corticosteroids stimulate electrogenic sodium absorption and 2) aldosterone, but not dexamethasone, inhibits neutral NaCl absorption and stimulates active potassium secretion.
Glucocorticoid-induced formation of tight junctions in mouse mammary epithelial cells in vitro.
TLDR
The results suggest that glucocorticoids play a fundamental role in the function and maintenance of cell-cell contact in the mammary epithelia by inducing the formation of tight junctions.
Effect of in vivo corticosteroids on Na+ transport across airway epithelia.
TLDR
It is found that elevating the plasma aldosterone concentration 10-fold (low-Na+diet) had no significant effect on amiloride-sensitive Na+ absorption across tracheal or nasal epithelia, and adrenalectomy (both normal and cystic fibrosis mice) also failed to alter Na+.
Estrogen increases the permeability of the cultured human cervical epithelium by modulating cell deformability.

  • Biology

  • 1998
TLDR
It is suggested that the mechanism by which estrogens decrease R LIS and increase permeability is by fragmenting the cytoskeleton and facilitating deformability and decreases in cervical cell size.
17β‐Oestradiol acutely regulates Cl− secretion in rat distal colonic epithelium
TLDR
It is concluded that E2 inhibits colonic Cl− secretion via a non‐genomic pathway that involves intracellular Ca2+ and PKC and it is possible that this gender‐specific mechanism contributes to the salt and water retention associated with high E2 states.
Effects of sex hormones on fluid and solute transport in Madin-Darby canine kidney cells.
TLDR
It is shown that testosterone stimulates fluid secretion and solute transport by MDCK cells by increasing cAMP generation, and in vivo, testosterone may contribute to cyst expansion by enhancing fluid secretion.
