Recent studies revealed that Tonicity-responsive enhancer binding protein (TonEBP) directly regulates the transcription of aldose reductase (AR), which catalyzes the first step of the polyol pathway of glucose metabolism. Activation of protein kinase C δ (PKCδ) is dependent on AR and it has been linked to diabetic complications. However, whether TonEBP affects expressions of AR and PKCδ in diabetic retinopathy was not clearly shown. In this study, we used TonEBP heterozygote mice to study the role of TonEBP in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic retinopathy. We performed immunofluorescence staining and found that retinal expressions of AR and PKCδ were significantly reduced in the heterozygotes compared to wild type littermates, particularly in ganglion cell layer. To examine further the effect of TonEBP reduction in retinal tissues, we performed intravitreal injection of TonEBP siRNA and confirmed the decrease in AR and PKCδ levels. In addition, we found that a proapoptotic factor, Bax ...

The intracarotid injection of hypertonic saline in the rabbit induces a brief drop in arterial pressure followed by a somewhat longer pressor phase. The osmoreceptors activating these changes are related to the hindbrain and are not the elements responsible for releasing neurohypophysial hormones. The pressure changes are not prevented by vagotomy, deafferentation of the carotid body and sinus, adrenalectomy, or parasympathetic blockade. The blood pressure effects are interpreted as resulting from sequential inhibition and stimulation of medullary vasomotor centers by the hypertonic solutions.. ...
RVD refers to the regulatory release of solutes and secondarily water, triggered by acute hyposmotic swelling, tending to restore cell volume to its initial value. RVI refers to the regulatory uptake of solutes and secondarily water, triggered by acute cell shrinkage, again tending to restore the cell volume. The RVI is usually less robustly exhibited since some cells usually do not therefore respond to basic hyperosmotic shrinkage (4), however the RVI could be commonly elicited by first hypotonically stimulating Bedaquiline distributor cells release a water and solutes. The next restoration of the isosmotic extracellular shower typically sets off a post-RVD RVI (14). With this approach Even, an RVI may possibly not be demonstrable without raising heat range to physiological amounts (15). A good deal happens to be known about the transportation systems mediating RVD and RVI (5, 10), and some info is available about their regulation. For example, tonicity-responsive enhancer binding protein ...
Although the ability of a high-salt diet (HSD) to promote hypertension in some people has been recognized for decades, the underlying mechanisms remain incompletely understood (see Marvar et al.). Machnik et al. found that rats fed a HSD developed hyperplasia of the lymph capillary network, accompanied by increased numbers of interstitial mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS) cells in skin and changes in skin water and electrolyte content consistent with interstitial Na+ accumulation. Most of the infiltrating MPS cells were immunoreactive for vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C, which stimulates lymphangiogenesis), and their depletion inhibited HSD-induced lymph capillary network hyperplasia, as well as HSD-mediated increases in skin abundance of VEGF-C and of the transcription factor TonEBP (tonicity-responsive enhancer binding protein). Moreover, MPS cell depletion exacerbated the HSD-induced increase in mean arterial blood pressure, as well as an HSD-induced increase in skin ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Negative inotropic influence of hyperosmotic solutions on cardiac muscle. AU - Wildenthal, K.. AU - Adcock, R. C.. AU - Crie, J. S.. AU - Templeton, G. H.. AU - Willerson, J. T.. PY - 1975. Y1 - 1975. N2 - In cardiac muscle, moderate degrees of hyperosmolality of the type encountered physiologically or clinically (i.e., less than 200 mosM above control) characteristically exert a positive inotropic effect, which presumably is mediated by increased Ca 2+ availability for binding to troponin. In contrast, skeletal muscle displays significant contractile depression on exposure to hyperosmotic solutions, even at mild degrees of hypertonicity. To determine whether a similar potential for hyperosmolarity induced depression also exists in cardiac muscle, right ventricular papillary muscles from cats were exposed to hypertonic solutions of mannitol or sucrose under circumstances in which positive inotropic effects were precluded by prior exposure to a bathing solution of 4.0 mM Ca 2+ and ...
A hypertonic solution has a greater concentration of solutes than another solution. In biology, the tonicity of a solution usually refers to its solute concentration relative to that of another solution on the opposite side of a cell membrane; a solution outside of a cell is called hypertonic if it has a greater concentration of solutes than the cytosol inside the cell. When a cell is immersed in a hypertonic solution, osmotic pressure tends to force water to flow out of the cell in order to balance the concentrations of the solutes on either side of the cell membrane. The cytosol is conversely categorized as hypotonic, opposite of the outer solution.. When plant cells are in a hypertonic solution, the flexible cell membrane pulls away from the rigid cell wall, but remains joined to the cell wall at points called plasmodesmata. The cells often take on the appearance of a pincushion, and the plasmodesmata almost cease to function because they become constricted, a condition known as plasmolysis. ...

Inwardly directed Cl- currents are believed to play an essential role in regulating the pHL by dissipating Δψ (Al-Awqati, 1995; Futai et al., 1998; Li and Weinman, 2002; Faundez and Hartzell, 2004). This was supported by the observation that removal of extracellular Cl- induced an increase in pHL in human fibroblasts (Seksek et al., 1995) and in HeLa cells (Llopis et al., 1998). Also, radioactive chloride was taken up into vacuolar membrane vesicles of yeast upon ATP hydrolysis in a protonophore-sensitive manner (Wada et al., 1992). However, other reports showed no effect of Cl- removal, and it was concluded that Cl- is not essential in maintaining steady-state pHL (Schreiber et al., 1996; Wu et al., 2000; Wu et al., 2001). Under hypertonic conditions, removal of extracellular Cl- or inhibition of Cl- transport using DIDS has been reported to eliminate the pHL acidification induced by hypertonicity in rat hepatocytes (Schreiber et al., 1996; Reinehr et al., 2006). In our study, ...
Exposure of guinea-pig trachea (GPT) to mucosal or serosal hypertonic solution elicits relaxation of the airway smooth muscle which is thought to be due to release of epithelium-derived relaxing factor (EpDRF). The purpose of the present study was to further characterize the effects of hypertonic challenge on GPT epithelial bioelectric properties. Tracheas were isolated, cleaned of smooth muscle,

The biological phenomena of exosmosis when a cell or tissue is placed into a strong hypertonic solution, is termed as plasmolysis, whereas the reverse process is cytolysis, which occurs if the cell is placed in a hypotonic solution resulting in a lower external osmotic pressure and a net flow of water into the cell ...
In a hypotonic environment, water enters a cell, and the cell swells. In an isotonic condition, the relative concentrations of solute and solvent are equal on both sides of the membrane. There is no net water movement; therefore, there is no change in the size of the cell. In a hypertonic solution, water leaves a cell and the cell shrinks. If either the hypo- or hyper- condition goes to excess, the cells functions become compromised, and the cell may be destroyed.. A red blood cell will burst, or lyse, when it swells beyond the plasma membranes capability to expand. Remember, the membrane resembles a mosaic, with discrete spaces between the molecules composing it. If the cell swells, and the spaces between the lipids and proteins become too large, the cell will break apart.. In contrast, when excessive amounts of water leave a red blood cell, the cell shrinks, or crenates. This has the effect of concentrating the solutes left in the cell, making the cytosol denser and interfering with ...

Abstract: Aldosterone effects are mediated by the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR), a transcription factor highly expressed in the distal nephron. Given that MR expression level constitutes a key element controlling hormone responsiveness, there is much interest in elucidating the molecular mechanisms governing MR expression. To investigate whether hyper- or hypotonicity could affect MR abundance, we established by targeted oncogenesis a novel immortalized cortical collecting duct (CCD) cell line and examined the impact of osmotic stress on MR expression. KC3AC1 cells form domes, exhibit a high transepithelial resistance, express 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 2 and functional endogenous MR, which mediates aldosterone-stimulated Na+ reabsorption through the epithelial sodium channel activation. MR expression is tightly regulated by osmotic stress. Hypertonic conditions induce expression of tonicity-responsive enhancer binding protein, an osmoregulatory transcription factor capable of binding ...
Osmosis is defined as the diffusion of water (solvent) from areas of high solvent (more amount of water) concentration to areas of low solvent (less amount of water) concentration across a semi-permeable membrane.. We call the liquid with more dissolved solutes in it a hypertonic solution and the liquid with less dissoved solutes is called a hypotonic solution. If the solutions on both sides of the membrane have the same concentration, it is called isotonic. In osmosis, water moves from a hypotonic solution to a hypertonic solution.. All organisms must have strategies to deal with the movement of water into and out of their cells by osmosis. Plant cells usually have more dissolved solvents inside their cells than the water found in the soil. Because of this, water will rush into the cells. To prevent the cells from bursting (lysis), plant cells are surrounded by a hard cell wall.. If the plant finds itself in a hypertonic solution, water will rush out of the cells causing the cells to shrivel ...
Background: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) is a life-threatening condition that results from a ruptured cerebral vessel. Cerebral edema and vasospasm are common complications and frequently require treatment with hypertonic solutions, in particular hypertonic sodium chloride (NaCl). We have previously shown that hyperchloremia in patients with aSAH given hypertonic NaCl is associated with the development of acute kidney injury (AKI), which leads to higher morbidity and mortality. Our current trial aims to study the effect of two hypertonic solutions with different chloride content on serum chloride concentrations in patients with aSAH who are at risk for AKI. Methods: A low ChloridE hyperTonic solution for brain Edema (ACETatE) is a single center, double-blinded, double-dummy pilot trial comparing bolus doses of 23.4% NaCl and 16.4% NaCl/Na-Acetate for the treatment of cerebral edema in patients with aSAH. All patients will be enrolled within 36 h following admission. Randomization ...
Asthmatic subjects were challenged with aerosols of hyper- and hypotonic saline 15 min (Group A) and 90 min (Group B) after inhaling clemastine. Measurements were made of forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) before and after medication and after challenge. When the FEV1 values (% predicted) were compared on the active and placebo days they were higher 15 min after clemastine (p less than 0.05) for both challenges and higher 90 min after clemastine inhalation (p less than 0.05) for the hypertonic challenge. The % fall in FEV1 was compared after the same concentration of saline aerosol had been given on both active and placebo days. In Group A the % fall in FEV1 on the clemastine day was reduced after challenge with hypertonic (p less than 0.02) and hypotonic (p less than 0.03) aerosol. In Group B there was a reduction in the % fall in FEV1 on the clemastine day only after hypertonic challenge (p less than 0.04). The protective effect afforded by clemastine was unrelated to change in ...

Upon activation, an internal hydrostatic pressure develops within the Fundulus egg, and compresses the egg proper to a reduced volume. When the perivitelline pressure is abolished by a highly hypertonic sucrose solution, the egg volume increases. As sucrose penetrates the chorion, the volume again decreases. The relation between P and V in these conditions is inverse, and approximates a rectangular hyperbola. The limiting factor causing most of the deviation is shown to be the incompressible fraction. It is concluded that the volume of the egg proper is controlled by the perivitelline pressure, and that the effect of hypertonic sucrose solution is exerted by lowering the pressure and thereby increasing membrane permeability non-specifically. It is also shown that some permanent alterations occur within the plasma membrane during activation that reduce the permeance, and thereby, increase the incompressible fraction. ...
For most cells, a sudden decrease in external osmolarity results in fast water influx that can burst the cell. To survive, cells rely on the passive response of mechanosensitive channels, which open under increased membrane tension and allow the release of cytoplasmic solutes and water. Although the gating and the molecular structure of mechanosensitive channels found in Escherichia coli have been extensively studied, the overall dynamics of the whole cellular response remain poorly understood. Here, we characterize E. colis passive response to a sudden hypoosmotic shock (downshock) on a single-cell level. We show that initial fast volume expansion is followed by a slow volume recovery that can end below the initial value. Similar response patterns were observed at downshocks of a wide range of magnitudes. Although wild-type cells adapted to osmotic downshocks and resumed growing, cells of a double-mutant ( ...
Dr. Zhous laboratory is primarily focused on signaling regulation of NFAT5 in hypertonic stress and leishmaniasis. NFAT5 is the newest member of the Rel transcription factor family. It regulates a variety of biological functions. Its protective role against hypertonic stress and modulation of immune responses are the two areas which have been studied most. The kidney medulla is normally exposed to a hypertonic environment because of the urinary concentration mechanism. NFAT5 is essential for the kidney medulla to survive and function adequately. NFAT5 may also protect against the pathogenic effects of parasites. like Leishmania. Over the past decade, more than a dozen of kinases have been identified that involve in tonicity-dependent activation of NFAT5 in cell culture. The opposite role of phosphatases has recently begun to reveal. Dr. Zhous laboratory is using cell and molecular approaches and mouse models to study how kinases and phosphatases regulate NFAT5 in the macrophages and kidney ...

Nuclear factor of activated T cells 5 (NFAT5) is a member of the Rel family of transcription factors and is an essential inducer of osmoprotective gene products in mammalian cells. Its activation by hypertonicity requires p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling and other pathways. A study now elucidates a signaling cascade regulated by the guanine nucleotide exchange factor Brx that leads to the activation of p38α MAPK and the induction of nfat5 messenger RNA in response to osmotic stress in lymphocytes and renal medullary cells. Brx-deficient lymphocytes showed impaired responses to hypertonicity, and brx+/− mice exhibited immune defects similar to those of nfat5-deficient mice. These findings support a major role for Brx in regulating the osmoprotective function of NFAT5 in different cell types.. ...

PURPOSE: Recent evidence suggests that taurine and myoinositol may serve as organic osmolytes in a number of cells, including lens and retinal pigment epithelia, but the mechanism for their increased accumulation in response to hypertonic stress is not known. To assess whether NaK ATPase contributed to the elevated levels of taurine and myoinositol in cells exposed to hypertonic media, we measured the activity of NaK ATPase, which is known to be implicated in the transport of these substances, in human lens and retinal pigment epithelia cultured in isotonic and hypertonic media. METHODS: Primary cultures of human lens epithelial (HLE) and human retinal pigment epithelial (HRPE) cells were maintained in isotonic and hypertonic media for varying periods of time, and the activity of NaK ATPase and the levels of taurine and myoinositol were measured in cells cultured under two different conditions. The possible involvement of the transport enzyme in the accumulation of the two osmolytes was also ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hypertonic shock inhibits growth factor receptor signaling, induces caspase-3 activation, and causes reversible fragmentation of the mitochondrial network. AU - Copp, Jeremy. AU - Wiley, Sandra. AU - Ward, Manus. AU - Van Der Geer, Peter. PY - 2005/2/1. Y1 - 2005/2/1. N2 - Hyperosmotic stress can be encountered by the kidney and the skin, as well as during treatment of acute brain damage. It can lead to cell cycle arrest or apoptosis. Exactly how mammalian cells detect hyperosmolarity and how the cell chooses between cell cycle arrest or death remains to be established. It has been proposed that hyperosmolarity is detected directly by growth factor receptor protein tyrosine kinases. To investigate this, we tested whether growth factors and osmotic stress cooperate in the activation of signaling pathways. Receptors responded normally to the presence of growth factors, and we observed normal levels of GTP-bound Ras under hyperosmotic conditions. In contrast, activation of Raf, Akt, ...
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a great threat to the health of elder (,50 years old) individuals. High salt intake is considered to raise the risk of AAA but the underlying mechanism remains to be elucidated. As endothelial dysfunction in the abdominal aorta is strongly associated with AAA, the present study hypothesized that high salt led to AAA by inducing apoptosis of endothelial cells. The present study verified that hypertonic medium with excess sodium chloride induced apoptosis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), a commonly used cell model to study aortic endothelial cells. Further mechanism studies suggested that hypertonic conditions elevated the expression of nuclear factor of activated T cells 5 (NFAT5) and a high level of NFAT5 was capable of inducing apoptosis of HUVECs. In the investigation of downstream signals of NFAT5, it was identified that either hypertonic conditions or NFAT5 overexpression promoted the activity of NF‑κB signaling pathway and ...
Cells of Dunaliella acidophila, an acidophilic and halotolerant green alga, which can grow at pH as high as 2.5 and as low as 0.2 (corresponding to 1.2 M H2SO4) accumulate glycerol when exposed to or grown in medium supplemented with glucose, NaCl, Na2SO4 or H2SO4, The cellular response was not dependent on the type of solute, but only on the solute concentration. When cells were exposed to hypertonic media, synthesis of glycerol commenced at once and continued until a new osmotic equilibrium was established between the cell sap and the medium. Only in hypertonic solution approaching lethal levels was a delay in the glycerol synthesis observed. The transition to hypertonic media showed an initial inhibition of photosynthesis and respiration followed by a full recovery of these activities. The inhibition and the time of recovery were dependent on the extent of hypertonic stress, no significant difference being shown by the solute type. In the same time scale, glycerol synthesis continued up to ...

Small and thick-walled vesicles formed visible fingers attached to the sphere. The water permeability of the single bilayer was found to be 41 micrometers/s. A variety of observations indicate that osmosis induces a parallel lipid flow between the monolayers of the bilayer, leading to a strong positive spontaneous curvature. They also suggest the formation of mostly submicroscopic daughter vesicles. The estimated coupling constant, 2 . 10(-6) mol/mol, is large enough to be biologically significant..

Osmotic Challenges Osmoconformers, consisting only of some marine animals, are isoosmotic with their surroundings and do not regulate their osmolarity Osmoregulators expend energy to control water uptake and loss in a hyperosmotic or hypoosmotic environment Most animals are stenohaline; they cannot tolerate substantial changes in external osmolarity Euryhaline animals can survive large fluctuations in external osmolarity
Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure required to stop water the movement of water. This is a method of measurement. The osmotic potential is the measure of tendency of water to move through a membrane which contains a solution. This occurs when a cell does not allow a hypertonic solution to leave the cell membrane. The cell begins to increase with water but the cell membrane can not release the solution and thus the water potential within the cell increases.. This causes the water to no longer enter the cell. c) Hypotonic is less solute to a certain amount of water. Hypertonic is more solute to a certain amount of water. Isotonic is the equal amount of solutes in two different solutions. d) Endocytosis is the inward bulge causes by incoming molecules.. Exocytosis is the expelling of a material outside a cell. e) Phagocytosis is the process where the cell obtains solid matter. This is different from the pinocytosis where the cell obtains liquid matter. These both are endocytic processes. ...

Tonicity is a measure of the osmotic pressure (as defined by the water potential of the two solutions) of two solutions separated by a semipermeable membrane. It is commonly used when describing the response of cells immersed in an external solution. Like osmotic pressure, tonicity is influenced only by solutes that cannot cross the membrane, as only these exert an osmotic pressure. Solutes able to freely cross the membrane do not affect tonicity because they will always be in equal concentrations on both sides of the membrane ...
Global fitness analysis makes use of a genomic library of tagged deletion strains. We used this approach to study the effect of chitosan, which causes plasma membrane stress. The data were analyzed using T-profiler, which was based on determining the sensitivities of groups of deletion strains to chitosan, as defined by Gene Ontology (GO) and by genomic synthetic lethality screens, in combination with t statistics. The chitosan-hypersensitive groups included a group of deletion strains characterized by a defective HOG (high-osmolarity glycerol) signaling pathway, indicating that the HOG pathway is required for counteracting chitosan-induced stress. Consistent with this, activation of this pathway in wild-type cells by hypertonic conditions offered partial protection against chitosan, whereas hypotonic conditions sensitized the cells to chitosan. Other chitosan-hypersensitive groups were defective in RNA synthesis and processing, actin cytoskeleton organization, protein N-glycosylation, ...
