McGinley C, Bishop DJ. Influence of training intensity on adaptations in acid/base transport proteins, muscle buffer capacity, and repeated-sprint ability in active men. J Appl Physiol 121: 1290-1305, 2016. First published October 14, 2016; doi:10.1152/japplphysiol.00630.2016-This study measured the adaptive response to exercise training for each of the acid-base transport protein families, including providing isoform-specific evidence for the monocarboxylate transporter (MCT)1/4 chaperone protein basigin and for the electrogenic sodium-bicarbonate cotransporter (NBCe)1...

The sodium bicarbonate co-transporter (NBC) is the major bicarbonate-dependent acid-base transporter in mammalian astrocytes and has been implicated in ischemic brain injury. A malfunction of astrocytes could have great impact on the outcome of stroke due to their participation in the formation of blood-brain barrier, synaptic transmission, and electrolyte balance in the human brain. Nevertheless, the role of NBC in the ischemic astrocyte death has not been well understood. In this work, we obtained skin biopsies from healthy human subjects and had their fibroblasts grown in culture and reprogrammed into human-induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs)...

Seawater acidification due to anthropogenic release of CO2 as well as the potential leakage of pure CO2 from sub-seabed carbon capture storage (CCS) sites may impose a serious threat to marine organisms. Although infaunal organisms can be expected to be particularly impacted by decreases in seawater pH, as a result of naturally acidified conditions in benthic habitats, information regarding physiological and behavioral responses is still scarce. Determination of PO2 and P(CO2) gradients within burrows of the brittlestar Amphiura filiformis during environmental hypercapnia demonstrated that besides hypoxic conditions, increases of environmental P(CO2) are additive to the already high P(CO2) (up to 0...

Objective : The purpose of this study was to examine predictors for success on Parts I and II of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) written examinations. Methods : Two validity studies were conducted to examine the criterion validity of Logan College assessments for Part I and II NBCE scores. Both studies consisted of a longitudinal design to examine the validity of entrance grade point average (GPA), in-program chiropractic course content GPA, and an institutional practice exam on Parts I and II of the NBCE...

Na-HCO3 cotransport (NBC) regulates intracellular pH (pHi) and HCO3 secretion in rat colon. NBC has been characterized as a 5,5'-diisothiocyanato-2-2'-stilbene (DIDS)-sensitive transporter in several tissues, while the colonic NBC is sensitive to both amiloride and DIDS. In addition, the colonic NBC has been identified as critical for pHi regulation as it is activated by intravesicular acid pH. Molecular studies have identified several characteristically distinct NBC isoforms [i.e. electrogenic (NBCe) and electroneutral (NBCn)] that exhibit tissue specific expression...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to extend research on the relationship between chiropractic students' learning and study strategies and national board examination performance. METHODS: Sixty-nine first trimester chiropractic students self-administered the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI). Linear trends tests (for continuous variables) and Mantel-Haenszel trend tests (for categorical variables) were utilized to determine if the 10 LASSI subtests and 3 factors predicted low, medium and high levels of National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) Part 1 scores...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigates the association between pre-National Board assessments and National Board Part 1 scores (NBCE) at a chiropractic college. METHODS: A convenience sample of 24 students enrolled in the doctor of chiropractic degree program was recruited for the study. These were 6th and 7th quarter students who had registered to take NBCE in March 2011. Each student's class scores were computed and average numeric means score derived. Subject clusters that make up testable subject categories in NBCE also were computed to obtain a single numeric mean score...

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) was recently demonstrated to enhance the HCO(3)(-) secretion through the apical anion channel, cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), but how the HCO(3)(-) entered the epithelial cells was not well understood, in part, due to the lack of specific inhibitors of the basolateral HCO(3)(-) transporters. Moreover, the function of the PTH-stimulated HCO(3)(-) secretion has never been investigated in vivo. Here, we designed three specific pairs of small interfering RNA sequences to simultaneously knockdown three variants of the electrogenic Na(+)/HCO(3)(-) co-transporter (NBCe)-1 in the intestinal epithelium-like Caco-2 monolayer...

BACKGROUND: Large-scale performance-based examinations are logistically complex and costly to run. Scores based solely on performance-based stations require extended testing time to achieve acceptable generalizability. PURPOSE: Combining scores from performance-based formats and written formats may improve test generalizability. METHODS: Data from 718 test-takers on the standardized patient-based portion of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Part IV examination were analyzed using a generalizability framework...

We discuss the influence of astrocytes on respiratory function, particularly central CO2 chemosensitivity. Fluorocitrate (FC) poisons astrocytes, and studies in intact animals using FC provide strong evidence that disrupting astrocytic function can influence CO2 chemosensitivity and ventilation. Gap junctions interconnect astrocytes and contribute to K+ homeostasis in the extracellular fluid (ECF). Blocking gap junctions alters respiratory control, but proof that this is truly an astrocytic effect is lacking...

BACKGROUND: Due to the high-stakes nature of board exams, students who enroll in chiropractic and other healthcare educational programs spend a significant amount of time and money on preparation strategies including: commercial coaching courses, course notes, commercial note sets, old test questions, online resources, text books and small group study sessions. However, whether such strategies help predict academic performance on the National Board exams has received little attention by researchers in chiropractic education...

The squid giant axon is a classic model system for understanding both excitable membranes and ion transport. To date, a Na(+)-driven Cl-HCO(3)(-) exchanger, sqNDCBE--related to the SLC4 superfamily and cloned from giant fiber lobe cDNA--is the only HCO(3)(-)-transporting protein cloned and characterized from a squid. The goal of our study was to clone and characterize another SLC4-like cDNA. We used degenerate PCR to obtain a partial cDNA clone (squid fiber clone 3, SF3), which we extended in both the 5' and 3' directions to obtain the full-length open-reading frame...

Using patch-clamp and molecular biological techniques, we identified and characterized membrane currents most likely generated by an electrogenic Na+-HCO3- cotransporter (NBCe) in acutely dissociated bovine parotid acinar (BPA) cells. When BPA cells were dialysed with a N-methyl-D-glucamine (NMDG)-glutamate-rich pipette solution, switching a Na-glutamate-rich, nominally HCO3--free bath solution to the one containing 25 mM HCO3-, but not Cl-, elicited a whole-cell current with a linear current-voltage relation...

The Na(+)-HCO(3)(-) cotransporter (NBC) is an important sarcolemmal acid extruder in cardiac muscle. The characteristics of NBC expressed functionally in heart are controversial, with reports suggesting electroneutral (NBCn; 1HCO(3)(-) : 1Na(+); coupling coefficient N= 1) or electrogenic forms of the transporter (NBCe; equivalent to 2HCO(3)(-) : 1Na(+); N= 2). We have used voltage-clamp and epifluorescence techniques to compare NBC activity in isolated ventricular myocytes from rabbit, rat and guinea pig. Depolarization (by voltage clamp or hyperkalaemia) reversibly increased steady-state pH(i) while hyperpolarization decreased it, effects seen only in CO(2)/HCO(3)(-)-buffered solutions, and blocked by S0859 (cardiac NBC inhibitor)...

Together, the Na(+)-coupled HCO(3)(-) transporters and the AE family of anion exchangers (i.e., Cl-HCO3 exchangers) comprise the bicarbonate transporter (BT) superfamily. Virtually all BTs are important for the regulation of intracellular pH (pH(i)) in cells throughout the body. Specific BTs also play roles in cell-volume regulation, as well as for the transport of salt and/or acid-base equivalents across many epithelia. Electrogenic Na/HCO3 cotransporters (NBCe's) play key roles in HCO(3)(-) reabsorption by the renal proximal tubule, and HCO(3)(-) secretion by the pancreatic duct...
