1. (Na+ - K+)- ATPase generates electrochemical potential difference for Na+ across BL membrane 2. Na+ moves passively across BB membrane, and also drives uptake of K+ and Cl-from lumen 3. K+ channels at both membranes allow recirculation of K+ and control Δ. 4. Trans-epithelial Na+ transport sets up trans-epithelial Δ, which drives paracellular Cl-transport into cleft.

However, diffusion and osmosis may also occur to a limited extent in the very tiny spaces between epithelial cells, a process termed paracellu-lar transport.

Three epithelia are examined as a means of exploring molecular mechanisms of fluid and ion transport. The Malpighian tubules of insects are the site of urine production and can transport a variety of ions and organic compounds. The energy for these processes is generated by a hydrogen ATPase at the apical membrane while a Na+/K+ ATPase energizes the basal surface.   TY - CHAP. T1 - Membrane Transport of Folates.

With few exceptions, all the internal and external body surfaces of animals, such as the skin, stomach, and intestines, are covered with a layer of epithelial cells called an epithelium (see Figure ). Many epithelial cells transport ions or small molecules from one side to the other of the epithelium.

Proteins and peptides required for brain homeostasis cross the blood–brain barrier via transcellular transport, but the mechanisms that control. After the pioneering studies by Ussing and co-workers, studies of epithelial Nael transport have come a long way. The first phase of the phenomenological description of the cell as a black box has been follow­ ed by studies of cellular mechanisms, the interplay of the different trans­ port components, and the mechanisms of regulation.

11 Transport across epithelia. Epithelial tissues form a protective barrier around the body, both outside and inside. On the outside they mostly lock internal milieu from the environmental influence, making our skin and mucosal membranes totally impermeable and waterproof.

However, on the inside, epithelial cells develop to be semipermeable dividers specialized for regulated environmental. The greater inhibition of Na + transport by serosal ouabain compared to the inhibition when ouabain was added to the mucosal side (Keynes and Harrison ) indicates that the basolateral exit of Na + depends—as in other epithelia—on the Na + /K +-ATPase, and that the apical entry of Na + occurs owing to secondary active by: Epithelial transport of sugars and amino acids (X).

In the G.I. tract and kidney, solutes are pumped into cells via a secondary active transporter, driven by the inward sodium leak. The solutes diffuse across the cell, and are transported down their energy gradient out of the cell across the basolateral membrane by way of facilitated diffusion.

The mechanism of fluid transport by leaky epithelia and the route taken by the transported fluid are in dispute. A consideration of current mathematical models for coupling of solutes and water, as well as the methodologies for the study of fluid transport, shows that local osmosis best accounts for water movement.

Transcellular Transport. Transcellular transport is the pathway of substances through the intestinal epithelial cells by transcytosis, a process by which particles are taken up by cells, depending on various physicochemical properties of particles, such as lipophilicity, size, hydrogen bond potential, surface hydrophobicity, charge, the physiology of the GI tract, and the presence of a ligand.

After the pioneering studies by Ussing and co-workers, studies of epithelial Nael transport have come a long way.

The first phase of the phenomenological description of the cell as a black box has been follow- ed by studies of cellular mechanisms, the interplay of the different trans- port components, and the mechanisms of regulation. Transport across Epithelia: The probably best example to comprehend the basic mechanisms of transepithelial transport is the amphibian skin as it was first described by Hans H.

Ussing and his coworkers in the 50ies of the last century. Indeed, it is known today that certain features of this tissue are more complicated as had been believed. - vital concept in transport epithelia - epithelia have two distinct sides that carry out distinct functions: the apical (or luminal) side facing the lumen of the organ and the basolateral (or interstitial) side facing the intercellular solution and the bloodstream.

This book is also an attempt to analyze the molecular basis for the movement of various solutes across an epithelial cell membrane. This volume is devoted to a diversity of epithelial transport mechanisms in rep- sentative cell membranes of a variety of living things. Ion transport accomplished by the pulmonary epithelial cells is imperative for proper lung function.
