    The colonic epithelium absorbs and secretes electrolytes and water. Ion and water absorption occurs primarily in surface cells, whereas crypt cells perform secretion. Ion transport in distal colon is regulated by aldosterone, which stimulates both Na absorption and K secretion. The electrogenic...

    Background Human colon may secrete substantial amounts of water secondary to chloride (Cl-) and/or potassium (K+) secretion in a variety of diarrhoeal diseases. Ion secretion occurs via Cl- and K+ channels, which are generally assumed to be co-located in the colonocyte apical membrane, although...

    Aldosterone and potassium secretion by the cortical collecting duct. Background. Aldosterone has been implicated in the regulation of both Na and K concentrations in the plasma. Release of the hormone is known to be stimulated by high plasma K, and infusion of aldosterone lowers plasma K....

    The adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) tumor suppressor gene is mutated in almost all human colonic cancers. Disturbances in Na+ absorption have been observed in colonic cancer, and ion channels such as ether a go-go (Eag) or Ca2+-sensitive BK channels have been recognized for their oncogenic...

    A 67-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) was referred with chronic diarrhoea, severe hypokalaemia and recurrent colonic pseudo-obstructions following haemorrhagic shock. The cause of secretory diarrhoea was uncertain, but an ileostomy identified the colon as the source of the...

    Background and Aim: Lubiprostone is a chloride channel activator in clinical use for the treatment of chronic constipation, but the mechanisms of action of the drug are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to determine whether lubiprostone exerts secretory effects in the intestine by...

    Aldosterone, a mineralocorticoid hormone, has a well-known function on water balance and blood pressure homeostasis. Recently, its role in metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and obesity has come into a spotlight. Aldosterone induces inflammation and oxidative stress that are attenuated by...

    The human colon has the capacity to secrete potassium (K+) ions and enhanced K+ secretion is a feature of a variety of diarrhoeal diseases. Recent work points to K+ secretion in human colon being mediated by high conductance (BK) K+ channels located in the apical membrane of colonic epithelial...

    The mineralocorticoid hormone aldosterone acts on target cells of kidney, colon, and the cardiovascular system through genomic and nongenomic pathways. Although the classical intracellular mineralocorticoid receptor plays a key role in mediating both pathways, it is unclear whether there are...

    Background A defining characteristic of the human intestinal epithelium is that it is the most rapidly renewing tissue in the body. However, the processes underlying tissue renewal and the mechanisms that govern their coordination have proved difficult to study in the human gut. Objective To...
