Effects of ouabain and osmolarity on bumetanide-sensitive potassium transport in simian virus-transformed 3T3 cells

, : Effects of ouabain and osmolarity on bumetanide-sensitive potassium transport in simian virus-transformed 3T3 cells. Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 687(2): 333-336

Unidirectional potassium influx in simian virus-transformed 3T3 cells was dissected into a ouabain-inhibitable "pump' component, a bumetanide-sensitive and chloride-dependent "cotransport' component, and a residual "leak' flux. The bumetanide-sensitive component was stimulated 2-3-fold by a 60-min preincubation with ouabain. Subsequent washing of the cells and incubation in ouabain-free saline reversed both the inhibition of the Na+ pump and the stimulation of bumetanide-sensitive flux. Bumetanide-sensitive potassium influx was also stimulated by hypertonic cell shrinkage (induced by 0.1 M or 0.2 M sorbitol). This latter observation suggests that the bumetanide-sensitive system may play a role in cellular volume regulation.
