Regulation of cytoplasmic pH of cultured bovine corneal endothelial cells in the absence and presence of bicarbonate

Intracellular pH (pHi) in confluent monolayers of cultured bovine corneal endothelial cells was determined using the pH-dependent absorbance of intracellularly trapped 5(and 6)carboxy-4',5'-dimethylfluorescein. Steady-state pH was 7.05 +/- 0.1 in the nominal absence of bicarbonate, and 7.15 +/- 0.1 in the presence of 28 mM HCO3-/5% CO2. Following an acid load imposed by a NH4Cl prepulse, pHi was regulated in the absence of HCO3- by a Na+-dependent process inhibitable to a large extent by 1 mM amiloride and 0.1 mM dimethylamiloride. In the presence of 28 mM HCO3-/5% CO2, this regulation was still dependent on Na+, but the inhibitory potency of amiloride was less. DIDS (1 mM) partially inhibited this regulation in the presence, but not in the absence of bicarbonate. With cells pretreated with DIDS, amiloride was as effective in inhibiting recovery from acid load as in the absence of HCO3-. The presence of intracellular Cl- did not appreciably affect this recovery, which was still sensitive to DIDS in the absence of Cl-. Removal of extracellular Na+ led to a fall of pHi, which was greatly attenuated in the absence of HCO3-. This acidification was largely reduced by 1 mM DIDS, but not by amiloride. Cl removal led to an intracellula...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.
