Acid-base effects on ileal sodium chloride absorption in vitro

The American Journal of Physiology
S G Vaccarezza, Alan N Charney


Previous work from this laboratory has shown that in the intact animal, ileal sodium chloride absorption is responsive to alterations in systemic acid-base balance. In vitro studies were undertaken to determine the nature of the active transport process affected. Paired, unstripped ileal tissues from Sprague-Dawley rats were mounted in modified Ussing chambers, and unidirectional 22Na and 36Cl fluxes were measured under short-circuited conditions (Isc). Acid-base effects were examined by changing either bathing solution partial pressure of CO2 (PCO2) or HCO3 concentration or by the addition of HCl or NaOH to a non-HCO3 N-2-hydroxyethylpiperazine-N'-2-ethanesulfonic acid (HEPES) buffer. When pH was decreased from 7.6 to 7.1, net sodium absorption increased twofold regardless of the means by which pH was changed. This increase was primarily accounted for by an increase in mucosal-to-serosal flux. Net chloride absorption was affected in a similar way, but the increase in absorption was primarily accounted for by an increase in mucosal-to-serosal flux only in the HEPES buffer. These changes were accompanied by reductions in Isc and residual flux. When all groups were considered, mucosal-to-serosal Na (JNam----s) and net Na (JNanet)...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain. Disocver the latest research on single cell analysis of the gut-brain axis here.
