Voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) play an important role in the control of membrane excitability. We previously reported that the excitability of nociceptor was increased by hypotonic stimulation. The present study tested the effect of hypotonicity on tetrodotoxin-sensitive sodium current (TTX-S current) in cultured trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons. Our data show that after hypotonic treatment, TTX-S current was increased. In the presence of hypotonicity, voltage-dependent activation curve shifted to the hyperpolarizing direction, while the voltage-dependent inactivation curve was not affected. Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 4 receptor (TRPV4) activator increased TTX-S current and hypotonicity-induced increase was markedly attenuated by TRPV4 receptor blockers. We also demonstrate that inhibition of PKC attenuated hypotonicity-induced inhibition, whereas PKA system was not involved in hypotonic-response. We conclude that hypotonic stimulation enhances TTX-S current, which contributes to
TY - CHAP. T1 - TRPV4 and hypotonic stress. AU - Cohen, David. PY - 2007. Y1 - 2007. N2 - TRPV4 was identified as the mammalian homologue of the C. elegans osmosensory channel protein, OSM-9. This nonselective cation channel is activated in vitro by even modest degrees of hypotonic cell swelling. Its expression in the mammalian central nervous system and kidney suggests a role in systemic osmoregulation-a view borne out by detailed balance studies in TRPV4-null mice. Two distinct mechanisms have been described through which TRPV4 may be activated by hypotonicity: one involves the SRC family of nonreceptor protein tyrosine kinases, while the other is mediated via arachidonic acid metabolites..

to the editor: I was surprised to see the unqualified recommendation to use 25 percent normal saline for intravenous maintenance fluids in hospitalized infants and children. Research has called into question the safety of hypotonic maintenance fluids in hospitalized children.1-3 Death and neurologic damage have been associated with hospital-acquired hyponatremia in children receiving hypotonic maintenance solutions, and a meta-analysis finds a significantly higher rate of the development of acute hyponatremia (odds ratio, 17.22; 95% confidence interval, 8.67 to 34.2).1 The authors of this meta-analysis question the safety of hypotonic maintenance fluids in children because of the risk of iatrogenic hyponatremia and hyponatremic encephalopathy. The literature has not established that isotonic maintenance fluids are safer than hypotonic maintenance solution, but it is important to acknowledge research that questions the longstanding practice of using hypotonic maintenance fluids in children. ...
Hypotonic-activated current is driven by Cl− ions, in microglia cells. (a) Representative whole-cell currents recorded under acute application of the hypotonic extracellular solution (8-10% dilution), at the indicated membrane potentials, with a standard ([Cl−]i = 144 mM; upper traces) or a low chloride ([Cl−]i = 4 mM; lower traces) pipette solution. As indicated, the left traces were recorded in normotonic condition, just before applying the hypotonic medium; the right traces were recorded 21 minutes after hypotonic stimulation. (b) Current-voltage relationships of the currents recorded in control condition ([Cl−]i = 144 mM; black squares; n = 3) and with a low chloride pipette solution ([Cl−]i = 4 mM; green circles; n = 4; HP = −70 mV) during acute application of hypotonic medium. Note the shift of the current reversal potential to more negative values. (c) Current-voltage relationships recorded in BV-2 cells, exposed acutely to a hypotonic medium (205 mOsm), in control condition ...
In most mammalian cells, regulatory volume decrease (RVD) is mediated by swelling-activated Cl(-) and K(+) channels. Previous studies in the human neuroblastoma cell line CHP-100 have demonstrated that exposure to hypoosmotic solutions activates Cl(-) channels which are sensitive to Ca(2+). Whether a Ca(2+)-dependent K(+) conductance is activated after cell swelling was investigated in the present studies. Reducing the extracellular osmolarity from 290 to 190 mOsm/kg H(2)O rapidly activated 86Rb effluxes. Hypoosmotic stress also increased cytosolic Ca(2+) in fura-2 loaded cells.
Purpose: We sought to identify the molecular determinants of retinal cell volume regulation, volume sensing and cell survival by characterizing the biophysical, electrophysiological and cellular properties of osmoregulation in retinal neurons and glia. We identified the osmosensor, TRPV4, and characterized the signaling cascades through which osmotic stress differentially regulates the amplitude and kinetics of calcium signals in retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and Müller glia.. Methods: Retinal cells from C57 mice were bathed in isotonic (300 mOsm) and hypotonic saline. Volume and Ca2+ changes were measured in cells loaded with calcein and fura-2. Apoptosis and cell survival were measured with TUNEL and Live/Dead assays. Force transduction was examined with a high-resolution mechanoclamp technique.. Results: Antibody labeling localized the cation channel TRPV4 to RGCs and Müller glia. During agonist or hypotonic stimulation (HTS), TRPV4 response properties in RGCs and Müller glia exhibited ...

TRPV4 was originally identified as a plasma membrane channel activated by hypotonic cell swelling (Liedtke et al., 2000; Strotmann et al., 2000; Watanabe et al., 2002; Vriens et al., 2004; Loukin et al., 2010a). A decrease in extracellular osmolarity induces Ca2+ influx through TRPV4 channels (Güler et al., 2002; Liedtke and Friedman, 2003; Raoux et al., 2007; Phan et al., 2009). To determine whether hypotonicity modulates [Ca2+]RGCs, cells were exposed to saline solutions with osmolarity reduced from 280 to 190 mOsm. As illustrated in Figure 6A for an RGC loaded with the Ca2+-insensitive cell-volume indicator dye calcein AM, a reduction in osmolarity of the superfusing saline from 280 to 192 mOsm saline evoked sustained swelling of the cell. The resulting increase in cell volume was detected as a decrease in the intensity of calcein fluorescence (Fig. 6A, green trace). In contrast to hypotonic stimuli, no change in intracellular volume was observed during exposure to 100 μm glutamate.. Cell ...
A hypotonic solution, is a solution that has a lower concentration of solutes (dissolved particles) than the liquid inside the cell. Since the cell membrane is only semi-permeable, the solutes cannot move across the membrane, but the water can! So, when a cell is placed into a hypotonic solution, water will rush into the cell causing it to bloat and swell. If the solution is very hypotonic, the cell can burst open! OUCH ...

Swelling-activated pathways for myo-inositol, one of the most abundant organic osmolytes in mammalian cells, have not yet been identified. The present study explores the SLC5A3 protein as a possible transporter of myo-inositol in hyponically swollen HEK293 cells. To address this issue, we examined the relationship between the hypotonicity-induced changes in plasma membrane permeability to myo-inositol Pino [m/s] and expression/localization of SLC5A3. Pino values were determined by cell volumetry over a wide tonicity range (100-275 mOsm) in myo-inositol-substituted solutions. While being negligible under mild hypotonicity (200-275 mOsm), Pino grew rapidly at osmolalities below 200 mOsm to reach a maximum of ∼3 nm/s at 100-125 mOsm, as indicated by fast cell swelling due to myo-inositol influx. The increase in Pino resulted most likely from the hypotonicity-mediated incorporation of cytosolic SLC5A3 into the plasma membrane, as revealed by confocal fluorescence microscopy of cells expressing ...

Aim: This study was performed to examine the role of Na+,K+-ATPase activity for the adaptive response to cell swelling induced by hypoosmoticity, i.e. the regulatory volume decrease (RVD). Methods: The studies were performed on COS-7 cells transfected with rat Na+,K+-ATPase. To study changes in cell volume, cells were loaded with the fluorescent dye calcein and the intensity of the dye, following exposure to a hypoosmotic medium, was recorded with confocal microscopy. Results: Ouabain-mediated inhibition of Na+,K+-ATPase resulted in a dose dependent decrease in the rate of RVD. Total Rb-86(+) uptake as well as ouabain dependent Rb-86(+) uptake, used as an index of Na+,K+-ATPase dependent K+ uptake, was significantly increased during the first 2 min following exposure to hypoosmoticity. Since protein kinase C (PKC) plays an important role in the modulation of RVD, a study was carried out on COS-7 cells expressing rat Na+,K+-ATPase, where Ser23 in the catalytic alpha1 subunit of rat Na+,K+-ATPase ...

Background: Hypotonic fluids are widely used in pediatrics and are the standard of care when giving maintenance fluids. However, there are several reports of risk of iatrogenic hyponatremia attributed to this practice in the literature. There is therefore uncertainty as to whether isotonic fluids would be the more appropriate fluid. Objectives: The primary objective was to compare effects of hypotonic and isotonic maintenance fluids on plasma sodium levels in children between the ages of 2 months and 15 years admitted at Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH). The secondary objective was to compare effects of hypotonic and isotonic maintenance fluids on other plasma electrolytes and need for additional fluid boluses in the same population of patients. Study design: Double blind randomized controlled trial of isotonic vs hypotonic maintenance intravenous fluids in children. Methods: One hundred and fifty two children with serum sodium levels between 130-150 mEq/L who required intravenous maintenance fluids
A decrease in intracellular ionic strength appears involved in the activation of swelling-elicited 3H-taurine efflux in cortical cultured astrocytes. Hyposmotic (50%) or isosmotic urea-induced swelling leading to a decrease of intracellular ionic strength, activated 3H-taurine efflux from a rate constant of about 0.008 min(-1) to 0.33 min(-1) (hyposmotic) and 0.59 min(-1) (urea). This efflux rate was markedly lower (maximal 0.03 min(-1)) in isosmotic swelling caused by K+ accumulation, where there is no decrease in ionic strength, or in cold (10 degrees C) hyposmotic medium (maximal 0.18 min(-1)), where swelling is reduced and consequently intracellular ionic strength is less affected. Also, astrocytes pretreated with hyperosmotic medium, which recover cell volume by ion accumulation, did not release 3H-taurine when they swelled by switching to isosmotic medium, but when volume was recovered by accumulation of urea, taurine release was restored. These results point to a key role of ionic ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Characterization of a native swelling-induced chloride current, ICl.swell, and its regulatory protein, pICln, in Xenopus oocytes.. AU - Ackerman, Michael John. AU - Krapivinsky, G. B.. AU - Gordon, E.. AU - Krapivinsky, L.. AU - Clapham, D. C.. PY - 1994. Y1 - 1994. N2 - The ability to precisely regulate cell volume is a fundamental property of most cells. Although the phenomenon of regulatory volume decrease (RVD), whereby a swollen cell loses salt and water to restore its original volume, has been appreciated for decades, the molecular identities of the proteins responsible for the volume control machinery and their regulation are essentially unknown. It appears that the rate-determining step in gaining volume control involves the activation of potassium and chloride conductance pathways. We have identified a native chloride current (ICl.swell) responsive to cell swelling in Xenopus oocytes [Ackerman et al. (1994) J Gen Physiol 103: 153-179]. Moreover, we have demonstrated that ...
The nature of the signal transducing the change in cell volume to the activation of osmolyte efflux pathways for RVD in osmotically swollen cells is not clear. Two major models have been proposed, one involving Ca2+ as an intracellular second messenger and the other in which RVD is mediated through Ca2+-independent mechanisms. According to the first model, cell swelling causes an increase in cytosolic Ca2+ that activates volume regulatory mechanisms. The increase in [Ca2+]i may result from Ca2+ influx, via plasma membrane channels (Christensen, 1987), or Ca2+ release from intracellular stores (McCarty and ONeil, 1992; Wu et al., 1997). The proposed effectors are mostly Ca2+-activated cation and anion channels and carriers. This model has been widely accepted as a paradigm for the involvement of Ca2+ as a transducing signal for RVD. Nevertheless, the existing evidence backing up this model is often weak and fragmentary, and the comprehensive analysis necessary to establish an active role of ...
In the present study, we first characterized the biophysical and pharmacological properties of a volume-regulated inwardly rectifying Cl− current, ICl.ir, in mammalian heart. In both atrial and ventricular myocytes of mouse and guinea pig heart, ICl.ir activated slowly on hyperpolarization with a biexponential time course. The current was very sensitive to changes in cell volume. Whereas hypertonic cell shrinkage diminished the current, hypotonic cell swelling increased the current and accelerated the activation kinetics. ICl.ir exhibited strong inward rectification with a reversal potential close to the estimated ECl in symmetrical Cl− and physiological asymmetrical Cl− conditions. The anion selectivity sequence of ICl.ir was Cl−,I−≫Asp−. Although ICl.ir was strongly blocked by Cd2+ and the carboxylic acid derivative, 9-AC, it was not sensitive to inhibition by effective blockers of ICl.vol such as TMX and the disulfonic stilbene derivative, SITS. All these properties clearly ...

The physiological function of epithelia is transport of ions, nutrients and fluid either in secretory or absorptive direction. All of these processes are closely related to cell volume changes, which are thus an integrated part of epithelial function. Transepithelial transport and cell volume regulation both rely on the spatially and temporally coordinated function of ion channels and transporters. In healthy epithelia, specific ion channels/transporters localize to the luminal and basolateral membranes, contributing to functional epithelial polarity. In pathophysiological processes such as cancer, transepithelial and cell volume regulatory ion transport are dys-regulated. Furthermore, epithelial architecture and coordinated ion transport function are lost, cell survival/death balance is altered, and new interactions with the stroma arise, all contributing to drug resistance. Since altered expression of ion transporters and channels is now recognized as one of the hallmarks of cancer, it is timely to

Shift in the cellular homeostasis of the organic osmolyte taurine has been associated with dysregulation of the volume-regulated anion channel (VRAC) complex, which comprises leucine-rich repeat-containing family 8 members (LRRC8A-E). Using SDS-PAGE, western blotting, qRT-PCR, and tracer technique ([3 H]taurine) we demonstrate that reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the cell growth-associated kinases Akt/mTOR, play a role in the regulation of VRAC in human alveolar cancer (A549) cells. LRRC8A is indispensable for VRAC activity and long-term exposure to hypoosmotic challenges and/or ROS impairs VRAC activity, not through reduction in total LRRC8A expression or LRRC8A availability in the plasma membrane, but through oxidation/inactivation of kinases/phosphatases that control VRAC activity once it has been instigated ...
The erythrocytes of some species are much damaged when handled in salt solutions, as in washing with the centrifuge after the ordinary method. The injury is mechanical in character. It may express itself in hemolysis only after the cells have been kept for some days. It is greatest in the case of dog corpuscles, and well marked with sheep and rabbit cells. The fragility of the red cells, as indicated by washing or shaking them in salt solution is different, not only for different species, but for different individuals. It varies independently of the resistance to hypotonic solutions.. The protection of fragile erythrocytes during washing is essential if they are to be preserved in vitro for any considerable time. The addition of a little gelatin (⅛ per cent) to the wash fluid suffices for this purpose, and by its use the period of survival in salt solutions of washed rabbit, sheep, and dog cells is greatly prolonged. Plasma, like gelatin, has marked protective properties.. Though gelatin acts ...
This test is based on the exploration of the tubular response to an acute fluid load. After overnight fast, all participants received twenty cc/Kg of mineralized water per os and two liters of intravenous hypotonic solution (0.66%) infused in two hours. Three blood samples are drawn (at 0, 60 and 120 minutes) and also urine samples are collected from each person at baseline and at 30 (±5) minutes intervals during the whole test. From the obtained blood and urine samples creatinine and osmolarity are measured, and then from the data corresponding to the most hypotonic urine sample (maximum dilution) and its corresponding blood sample three renal physiological parameters (proximal sodium clearance, free water clearance, sodium TALH reabsorption) are analyzed. Since patient inclusion follow up period is one ...

the mechanisms responsible for the maintenance of a constant cell volume under "resting" conditions and for the cells capability of counteracting volume perturbation by volume recovery processes have been described in a wide variety of cells and have been studied in detail for many years (23, 26, 36). Increasing evidence now supports the conclusion that signaling in cell volume control cooperates with signaling in cell proliferation, cell migration, and apoptosis. However, we still know little as to the function of a change in cell volume as a direct signal in the regulation of these cellular parameters. As discussed by Hoffmann and Ussing (27), the term "volume regulation" may lead to the misconception that cells have one preferred volume, which is not the case since the "preferred" volume may highly depend on the differential and functional state of the cell, such as in secreting epithelia (21, 27) and in cells during growth and proliferation per se. Thus, cell proliferation is often ...
