The unique ultrastructure of secretory membranes in gastric parietal cells depends upon the presence of H+, K+-ATPase

Abstract

Ion transporters play a central role in gastric acid secretion. To determine whether some of these transporters are necessary for the normal ultrastructure of secretory membranes in gastric parietal cells, mice lacking transporters for H+, K+, Cl–, and Na+ were examined for alterations in volume density (Vd) of basolateral, apical, tubulovesicular and… (More)
