Ion selective effects of salicylate on antral mucosa

D Fromm


The effects of luminal salicylate, 5mM, were measured on rates of ion transport by isolated antral mucosa. At neutral luminal pH, salicylate increases Na and decreases Cl permeability. Salicylate does not alter net Na transport but decreases net Cl secretion. At luminal pH 4, the effects of salicylate can be arbitrarily divided into two phases. The intitial phase is associated with an increase in Na and marked decrease in Cl permeability. Subsequently, a greater increase in Na permeability and a marked increase in Cl permeability occurs. Active Na transport persists in the presence of salicylate at pH 4. Indirect evidence also suggests that Cl secretion persists under these conditions, buy at a reduced rate. The rate of luminal acid acid loss also increases in the presence of salicylate. A 4-fold increase in salicylate concentration or decrease in luminal pH from 4 to 3 did not appear to intensify the effects observed for 5 mM salicylate at pH 4. The increase in cation and decrease in anion permeability observed at pH 7 and initially at pH 4 are compatible with an influence of a negative charge of the salicylate anion. The subsequent changes observed in the presence of acid also are compatible with the concept that as the mucos...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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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