Jiaqi Lin, Alfredo Alexander-Katz
Biological membranes are normally under a resting transmembrane potential (TMP), which originates from the ionic imbalance between extracellular fluids and cytosols, and serves as electric power storage for cells. In cell electroporation, the ionic imbalance builds up a high TMP, resulting in the poration of cell membranes. However, the relationship between ionic imbalance and TMP is not clearly understood, and little is known about the effect of ionic imbalance on the structure and dynamics of biological membranes...

Background: Natural mineral waters are purchased and consumed according to consumer preferences and possible recommendations. The choice of appropriate water should take into account not only the general level of mineralization but also the content of individual components, including electrolytes such as sodium and potassium. Sodium is necessary to ensure the proper physiological functions of the body. It is defined as a health risk factor only when its excessive intake occurs. Potassium acts antagonistically towards sodium and calcium ions, contributes to a reduction of the volume of extracellular fluids and at the same time reduces muscle tension and permeability of cell membranes...

A prerequisite for tissue electrolyte homeostasis is highly regulated ion and water transport through kidney or intestinal epithelia. In the present work, we monitored changes in the cell and luminal volumes of type II Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells grown in a 3D environment in response to drugs, or to changes in the composition of the basal extracellular fluid. Using fluorescent markers and high-resolution spinning disc confocal microscopy, we could show that lack of sodium and potassium ions in the basal fluid (tetramethylammonium chloride (TMACl) buffer) induces a rapid increase in the cell and luminal volumes...

INTRODUCTION: The pathological course of several chronic inflammatory diseases, including cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, features an aberrant innate immune response dominated by neutrophils. In cystic fibrosis, neutrophil burden and activity of neutrophil elastase in the extracellular fluid have been identified as strong predictors of lung disease severity. REVIEW: Although neutrophils are generally considered to be rigid, pre-programmed effector leukocytes, recent studies suggest extensive plasticity in how neutrophil functions unfold upon recruitment to peripheral tissues, and how they choose their ultimate fate...

PURPOSE: Predicting target site drug concentration in the brain is of key importance for the successful development of drugs acting on the central nervous system. We propose a generic mathematical model to describe the pharmacokinetics in brain compartments, and apply this model to predict human brain disposition. METHODS: A mathematical model consisting of several physiological brain compartments in the rat was developed using rich concentration-time profiles from nine structurally diverse drugs in plasma, brain extracellular fluid, and two cerebrospinal fluid compartments...

Soheil Hashemi, Ali Abdolali
The effect of static magnetic fields on neuron function has been studied. None of the possible explanations are decisive or fully consistent with evidence in the literature. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to examine the different possibilities, for the first time, through a three-dimensional modeling strategy in an effort to find out which possibility or combination is effective on cell function. A full-wave analysis was employed to simulate various effects of magnetic fields. The possibilities included force exerted on mobile ions, magnetophoretic force exerted on ions with permeability different from intracellular or extracellular fluids, magnetophoretic force exerted on sensor proteins in ion channels, and magnetophoretic pressure exerted on the membrane and spatial rotation of anisotropic diamagnetic particles...

In order to understand the drivers in the biological system response to dopamine D2 receptor antagonists, a mechanistic semi-physiologically-based (PB) pharmacokinetic-pharmacodymanic (PKPD) model was developed to describe prolactin responses to risperidone (RIS) and its active metabolite paliperidone (PAL). A microdialysis study in rats was performed to obtain detailed plasma, brain extracellular fluid (brainECF), and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of PAL and RIS. To assess the impact of P-gp functioning on brain distribution, experiments were performed in absence or presence of the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) inhibitor tariquidar (TQD)...

BACKGROUND: The optimal control of blood volume without fluid overload is a main challenge in the daily care of intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Accordingly this study focused on the identification of biomarkers to help characterize fluid overload status. METHODS: Sixty-seven patients were studied from ICU admission to day 7 (D7). Blood and urine samples were taken daily and sodium and water balance strictly calculated resulting in a total cumulative assessment of ∆Na(+) and ∆H2O...

Zinc transporters are solute carrier family members. To date, 10 zinc transporters (ZnTs) and 14 Zrt-, Irt-like proteins (ZIPs) have been identified. ZnTs control intracellular zinc levels by effluxing zinc from the cytoplasm into the extracellular fluid, intracellular vesicles, and organelles; ZIPs also contribute to control intracellular zinc levels with influxing zinc into the cytoplasm. Recently, changes in zinc transporter expression have been observed in some stress-induced diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and diabetes mellitus...

Loss of extracellular superoxide dismutase (SOD3) contributes to inflammatory and fibrotic lung diseases. The human SOD3 R213G polymorphism decreases matrix binding, redistributing SOD3 from the lung to extracellular fluids and protects against LPS induced alveolar inflammation. We utilized mice expressing a naturally occurring single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs1799895, within the HBD of SOD3 which results in an amino acid substitution at position 213 (R213G mice) to test the hypothesis that the redistribution of SOD3 into the extracellular fluids would impart protection against bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis and secondary pulmonary hypertension (PH)...

BACKGROUND: Macular oedema (MO) is the accumulation of extracellular fluid in the central retina (the macula). It may occur after cataract surgery and may give rise to poor visual outcome, with reduced visual acuity and distortion of the central vision. MO is often self-limiting with spontaneous resolution, but a small proportion of people with chronic persistent MO may be difficult to treat. Chronic oedema may lead to the formation of cystic spaces in the retina termed 'cystoid macular oedema' (CMO)...

To reveal unknown and potentially important mechanisms of drug action, multi-biomarker discovery approaches are increasingly used. Time-course relationships between drug action and multi-biomarker profiles, however, are typically missing, while such relationships will provide increased insight in the underlying body processes. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the dopamine D2 antagonist remoxipride on the neuroendocrine system. Different doses of remoxipride (0, 0.7, 5.2, or 14 mg/kg) were administered to rats by intravenous infusion...

: The initial distribution volume of glucose (IDVG) has been reported to be a surrogate marker of cardiac preload. However, the relationship between cardiac output and IDVG is not fully understood. We investigated the effects of cardiac output on IDVG in the absence of fluid gain or loss in pigs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirteen pigs were anesthetized and allocated to either the modified cardiac output group (m-CO group, n = 10) or the control group (control group, n = 3)...

Macropinocytosis is an endocytic pathway that is involved in the nonselective fluid uptake of extracellular fluid. Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease associated with autoantibodies to type XVII collagen (COL17), which is a component of hemidesmosome. When keratinocytes are treated with BP-IgG, COL17 internalizes into cells by way of the macropinocytosis. We investigated the mechanism of COL17 macropinocytosis using DJM-1 cells, a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma cell line...

We present a rare case of a patient suffering temporary aphasia after an extracranial-to-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass surgery, which was shown as a transient hypointense lesion on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) with increased apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value, evidence of postoperative hyperperfusion. Postoperative hyperperfusion syndrome after EC-IC bypass causing temporary neurological deterioration has been reported rarely as isosignal intensity on DWI with hyperintense lesion on T2-weighted image and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) image as an expression of vasogenic edema...

Cerebral microdialysis is widely used in neurocritical care units. The goal of this study was to establish the reference interval for the interstitial fluid concentrations of energy metabolites and glycerol by using the extrapolation to zero-flow methodology in anesthetized patients and by constant perfusion at 0.3 µL/min in awake patients. A CMA-71 probe was implanted during surgery in normal white matter of patients with posterior fossa or supratentorial lesions, and the perfusion flow rate was randomized to 0...

A facilitative transport system exists on the blood-brain barrier (BBB) that has been tacitly assumed to be a path for glutamate entry to the brain. However, glutamate is a non-essential amino acid whose brain content is much greater than plasma, and studies in vivo show that glutamate does not enter the brain in appreciable quantities except in those small regions with fenestrated capillaries (circumventricular organs). The situation became understandable when luminal (blood facing) and abluminal (brain facing) membranes were isolated and studied separately...

Contrast enhancement by an extracellular-fluid contrast agent (CA) (Gd-DOTA) depends primarily on the blood-brain-barrier permeability (bp), and transverse-relaxation change caused by intravascular T2 CA (superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles, SPIONs) is closely associated with the blood volume (BV). Pharmacokinetic (PK) vascular characterization based on single-CA-using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) has shown significant measurement variation according to the molecular size of the CA. Based on this recognition, this study used a dual injection of Gd-DOTA and SPIONs for tracing the changes of bp and BV in C6 glioma growth (Days 1 and 7 after the tumor volume reached 2 mL)...

Osteoclasts demineralize and resorb bone once they attach to its surface. However, it's still unclear how the osteoclasts choose the specific sites for their attachments. It is postulated in this article that the decreased extracellular free ionized calcium concentration (Ca(2+)[e]) can provide a microenvironment for osteoclasts to recognize and then initiate the attachment process. The osteoclasts initially attach to the bone surface via integrating its integrin αvβ3 and RGD containing ligands in bone matrix...

Sodium and its associated anions are the major determinant of extracellular fluid volume, and the reabsorption of Na(+) by the kidney plays a crucial role in long-term blood pressure control. The goal of this study was to investigate the extent to which inhibitors of transepithelial Na(+) transport (TNa) along the nephron alter urinary solute excretion and TNa efficiency and how those effects may vary along different nephron segments. To accomplish that goal, we used the multinephron model developed in the companion study (28)...
