Amiloride-Sensitive Sodium Channels: Physiology and by Dale J. Benos (Eds.)

By Dale J. Benos (Eds.)

Sodium reabsorbing epithelia play a tremendous function in whole-body sodium homeostasis. a few examples of sodium regulating tissues comprise kidney, colon, lung, and sweat ducts. Sodium delivery throughout those membranes is a two-step method: access via an amiloride-sensitive sodium channel and go out through the ouabain-sensitive sodium/potassium ATPase. The sodium access channels are the rate-limiting determinant for delivery and are regulated by way of a number of diversified hormones. The sodium channels additionally play an important function in a couple of affliction states, like high blood pressure, edema, drug-induced hyperkalemia, and cystic fibrosis. Amiloride-Sensitive Sodium Channels: body structure and useful variety offers the 1st in-depth alternate of rules referring to those sodium channels, their rules and involvement in common and pathophysiological events. Key beneficial properties * Summarizes present nation of amiloride-sensitive sodium channel box * Analyzes structure-function of epithelial sodium channels * Discusses immunolocalization of epithelial sodium channels * Examines hormonal rules of sodium channels * Discusses sodium channels in lymphocytes, kidney, and lung * Considers mechanosensitivity of sodium channels * offers rules on sodium channels and affliction
