The effect of L-arginine on transepithelial ion transport was examined in cultured M-1 mouse renal cortical collecting duct (CCD) cells using continuous short circuit current (Isc) measurements in HCO3-/CO2 buffered solution. Steady state Isc averaged 73.8 +/- 3.2 microA/cm2 (n = 126) and was reduced by 94 +/- 0.6% (n = 16) by the apical addition of 100 microM amiloride. This confirms that the predominant electrogenic ion transport in M-1 cells is Na+ absorption via the epithelial sodium chan...Expand abstract
