  • Whilst the luminal fluid in the descending limb becomes increasingly hyperosmotic down the length of the limb, the fluid in the ascending limb becomes increasingly hypotonic, as sodium, potassium and chloride are being removed with the aid of the Na+ / K+-2Cl - cotransport system in the apical membrane.

  • Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), including ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD), are multi-factorial diseases typically associated with relapsing diarrhea, which is caused by increased paracellular permeability of the intestinal epithelial lining and an intestinal hyperosmotic environment

  • These data demonstrate that Sp1 has an important role in the basal expression of SPAK, and Sp1 and NF-κB have important roles in the transcriptional regulation of SPAK expression under hyperosmotic conditions.
