Swelling-activated cation-selective channels in A6 epithelia are permeable to large cations.

Abstract

Effects of basolateral monovalent cation replacements (Na+ by Li+, K+, Cs+, methylammonium, and guanidinium) on permeability to 86Rb of volume-sensitive cation channels (VSCC) in the basolateral membrane and on regulatory volume decrease (RVD), elicited by a hyposmotic shock, were studied in A6 epithelia in the absence of apical Na+ uptake. A complete and… (More)
