Abstract

The aim of this study was to express the cloned skate anion exchanger 1 (skAE1) in Xenopus oocytes and determine whether the differences in monovalent cation permeabilities in hypotonically stimulated skate and trout erythrocytes could be due to differences in the presence or absence of intracellular channel regulators between the two species or in the intrinsic permeability properties of the channels themselves. The expressed protein (skAE1) was inserted into the oocyte cell membrane and facilitated both Cl− exchange and taurine transport. Expression of skAE1 in oocytes showed similar monovalent cation permeabilities as previously reported for skate erythrocytes and different from both trout erythrocytes and trAE1 expressed in Xenopus oocytes. These results show that the skAE1 expressed in oocytes functions in a manner similar to that of the osmolyte channel in hypotonically activated skate erythrocytes and supports the hypothesis that differences in the monovalent cation permeabilities of the osmolyte channels in skate and trout RBCs resides in the differences in permeability properties of the channels between the two species.
