Ion Transport in MDCK Cells
The use of monolayers of MDCK cells as a model system for natural transporting epithelia created the necessity of learning about their ion-translocating mechanisms. These mechanisms have been analyzed directly by measuring unidirectional fluxes of tracers, and indirectly through their consequences on electrical parameters and blister-forming activity of the monolayer. This chapter reviews briefly the information available on the mechanisms and also describes the studies performed to determine whether they respond to agents like serum, ADH, changes in sodium concentration, and viral infection, which are known to affect transport parameters in other biological preparations.
