Chloride and bicarbonate may occur in response to cell swelling, mediated by alterations in conductances and/or co-transporters. Solute accumulation following exposure to hyperosmotic media is not seen in all epithelia. When it does occur, it may involve organic solutes and/or inorganic ions, with a variety of secondary active transporters implicated in different epithelia. Responses may reflect contributions of apiCal and/or basolateral pathways. The variety of processes used by the different epithelial preparations to stabilize cell volume tends to lend some credence to the view that volume regulation per se is an important cellular process.

The colonic tumour cell line, T84, serves as a useful preparation for studying this secretion. Under whole cell patch-clamp conditions, these cells swelled over some 5 to 10 min (Worrell et al. 1989). This swelling, attributed to a net gain of solutes from the clamp-pipette, was associated with a marked increase in transmembrane current. Restoration of cell volume, either by increasing medium osmolarity with 50-75 mM sucrose or by decreasing the osmolarity of the filling solution in the pipette by an equivalent amount, returned cell current to initial values.
