Effect of NaPi-mediated phosphate transport on intracellular pH.


Moschèn, I; Setiawan, I; Bröer, S; Murer, H; Lang, F (2001). Effect of NaPi-mediated phosphate transport on intracellular pH. Pflügers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology (Pflugers Archiv), 441(6):802-806.

Abstract

Extracellular pH has been shown previously to influence transport via type-II Na+/phosphate (NaPi) transporters by modifying the affinity of the carrier for Na+ and by altering the availability of divalent and monovalent phosphate. As the transport of monovalent phosphate would be expected to acidify, and that of divalent phosphate to alkalinize the cell interior, the effect of phosphate transport on cytosolic pH was studied using ion selective microelectrodes in Xenopus oocytes expressing NaPi-3 or NaPi-5. At an alkaline extracellular pH (pHe) of 8.0, addition of phosphate elicited a strong inward current, depolarization of the cell membrane and cytosolic alkalinization. At pHe 6.0 the phosphate-induced inward current and depolarization were reduced and the alkalinization completely abolished. In conclusion, at alkaline pHe phosphate transport is enhanced and the transport of divalent phosphate prevails. At pHe 6.0, phosphate transport is attenuated and is accomplished by transport of both divalent and monovalent phosphate.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
