Wehner F, Tinel H. Role of Na+ conductance, Na(+)-H+ exchange, and Na(+)-K(+)-2Cl- symport in the regulatory volume increase of rat hepatocytes. J Physiol. 1998;506 ( Pt 1):127-42 pubmed
..6. The prominent role of Na+ conductance in the RVI of rat hepatocytes could be confirmed on the basis of the pharmacological profile of this process, which was characterized by means of confocal laser-scanning microscopy. ..

..In contrast, there is little if any contribution of K(+) conductance, Na(+)/H(+) antiport, Na(+)-K(+)-2Cl(-) symport, and Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase to this process. ..

..The set-point for the activation of RVI clearly lies below 327 mosmol/l. Na+/H+ antiport is the most sensitive Na+ importer involved in RVI, whereas Na+ conductance plays the prominent role from 360 mosmol/l upwards. ..

..Whereas a significant contribution of Na(+)/H(+) antiport was also detectable, Na(+)-K(+)-2Cl(-) symport most likely did not contribute to RVI. ..

..It is concluded that K+ channel activation by BSP (as well as by DIDS and indocyanine green) may reflect a physiological mechanism linking the sinusoidal uptake of certain anions to their electrogenic canalicular secretion. ..
