It is possible that the potassium channel repertoire of the basolateral membrane
indirectly contributes to the observed variety in responses to [H.
The general finding of Aqp3 protein in the basolateral membrane
of chloride cells suggests that this aquaporin is participating in cell volume regulation and may take part in nitrogen excretion as well.
In the kidney, GLUT2 is located in the basolateral membrane
where it participates in the release of reabsorbed glucose (Wright et al.
1990), suggest that OAT1 and OAT3 activities localized at the basolateral membrane
, which mediate the entries of several endogenous and exogenous substances into the proximal tubule cells, can be influenced earlier by cholesterol accumulation than the effluxing transporters localized apically.
This protein is responsible for iron export from the basolateral membrane
of entercytes and release of iron from hepatocytes and macrophages.
The mRNA mediates translation of specific proteins that increase the activity and/or number of the luminal membrane sodium channels and basolateral membrane
In thyroid cells, iodide uptake occurs across the basolateral membrane
and is driven by an inwardly directed [Na.
The amount of AQP6vs located in the basolateral membrane
varied between specimens; AQP6vs was scarcely detectable in some cases, but was abundantly observed in others.
In well-differentiated tumors, RAAG12 expression was observed on apical membrane surfaces together with basolateral membrane
Fructose can also cross the basolateral membrane
via the activity of GLUT2 (Cheeseman, 1993).
