Intracellular pH recovery from an acute alkaline load in rat hepatocytes is mediated by a Cl(-)-HCO3- exchanger, which is electroneutral, Na+ independent, and 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (DIDS) sensitive.

Abstract

Intracellular pH recovery from an acute alkaline load in rat hepatocytes is mediated by a Cl(-)-HCO3- exchanger, which is electroneutral, Na+ independent, and 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (DIDS) sensitive. Stimulation of this Cl(-)-HCO3- exchanger requires intact microtubules, suggesting that vesicular transport may be required to activate this exchanger. To determine if intracellular alkalinization stimulates biliary HCO3- excretion and bile flow in the intact liver by vesicle-mediated exocytosis, isolated perfused rat livers (IPRL) were alkalinized by two protocols. Isohydric changes in CO2 and HCO3- concentrations induced transient increases in bile flow by 36% (P < 0.01), which were abolished by DIDS (0.01 mM), inhibited by pretreatment with colchicine (P = 0.01), but not affected by membrane depolarization with the K(+)-channel blocker BaCl2 (1 mM). Similarly, perfusion with 20 mM NH4Cl produced a 42% increase in bile flow (P < 0.01) and a 26% increase in biliary HCO3- excretion. Both the increases in bile flow and HCO3- excretion were almost completely blocked by DIDS and inhibited by pretreatment with colchicine (P < 0.01). Biliary excretion of horseradish peroxidase was also increased during intracellular alkalinization with either protocol (P < 0.01). These findings suggest that intracellular alkalinization stimulates bile flow and biliary HCO3- excretion. Microtubule-dependent vesicular-mediated exocytosis is involved in this response
