We have used a well-differentiated A6-cell preparation (A6-C1) to study cellular location and vasopressin control of Na/H-exchange activity. After cell acidification, cell pHi (measured by BCECF-fluorescence) only recovered by the addition of Na medium to the basolateral cell surface; this pHi recovery was inhibited by dimethylamiloride (2 microM) consistent with basolateral location of Na/H-exchange activity. Addition of vasopressin produced stimulation of Na/H-exchange activity and increased the affinity of the exchanger for Na+. Stimulation of Na/H exchange was mimicked by pharmacological activation of protein kinase A (forskolin, 8-Br-cAMP) and not by pharmacological activation of protein kinase C (TPA). It is concluded that basolaterally located Na/H-exchange in A6-C1 cells is activated by vasopressin.

Abstract

We have used a well-differentiated A6-cell preparation (A6-C1) to study cellular location and vasopressin control of Na/H-exchange activity. After cell acidification, cell pHi (measured by BCECF-fluorescence) only recovered by the addition of Na medium to the basolateral cell surface; this pHi recovery was inhibited by dimethylamiloride (2 microM) consistent with basolateral location of Na/H-exchange activity. Addition of vasopressin produced stimulation of Na/H-exchange activity and increased the affinity of the exchanger for Na+. Stimulation of Na/H exchange was mimicked by pharmacological activation of protein kinase A (forskolin, 8-Br-cAMP) and not by pharmacological activation of protein kinase C (TPA). It is concluded that basolaterally located Na/H-exchange in A6-C1 cells is activated by vasopressin.
