The cortical collecting duct (CCD) forms part of the aldosterone-sensitive distal nephron and plays an essential role in maintaining the NaCl balance and acid-base status. The CCD epithelium comprises principal cells as well as different types of intercalated cells. Until recently, transcellular Na+ transport was thought to be restricted to principal cells, whereas (acid-secreting) type A and (bicarbonate-secreting) type B intercalated cells were associated with the regulation of acid-base… CONTINUE READING
