Volume regulatory responses in frog isolated proximal cells

Cells respond to increases in volume by activating solute efflux pathways, resulting in water loss and restoration of the original cell volume. The solute efflux pathways underlying these volume regulatory decrease (VRD) responses have been relatively well studied. However, the transduction pathways whereby the change in cell volume is converted into an intracellular signal resulting in VRD are much less well understood. We have examined VRD in isolated proximal tubule cells from the frog, with… CONTINUE READING
