The ability of early proximal tubule cells of theNecturus kidney to regulate volume was evaluated using light microscopy, video analysis and conventional microelectrodes.Necturus proximal tubule cells regulate volume in both hyperand hyposmotic solutions. Volume regulation in hyperosmotic fluids is HCO 3 − dependent and is associated with a decrease in the relative K+ conductance of the basolateral cell membrane and a decrease in the resistance ratio,R a /R bl . Volume regulation in hyposmotic… CONTINUE READING
