Abstract

Rat collecting ducts display either an ouabain-insensitive or an ouabain-sensitive K-ATPase activity inhibited by Sch28080 according as animals are fed a normal or a potassium-depleted diet (types I and III K-ATPase, respectively). Two isoforms of H,K-ATPase have been cloned from rat gastric mucosa and colon, respectively. Gastric and colonic H,K-ATPase are expressed in the kidney, suggesting that they might account for types I and III K-ATPases. However, this hypothesis is not fully supported by segmental expression of gastric and colonic H,K-ATPase along the rat collecting duct, as well as by comparison of the pharmacological properties of gastric and colonic H,K-ATPase expressed in Xenopus ovocyte and types I and III K-ATPases in rat collecting ducts. The aim of the present work is to address directly the molecular origin of types I and III K-ATPases in the mouse collecting duct by measuring K-ATPase activities in collecting ducts of wild-type mice and mice genetically deficient in either gastric or colonic H,K-ATPase fed either a regular or a potassium-depleted diet. Like the rat, mouse collecting ducts display type I or III K-ATPase activity when fed a regular or a potassium-depleted diet, respectively. Type I K-ATPase activity is detected in colonic H,K-ATPase-deficient mice but not in gastric H,K-ATPase-deficient animals. Conversely, type III K-ATPase activity disappears in colonic H,K-ATPase-deficient but not in gastric H,K-ATPase-deficient mice. In conclusion, types I and III K-ATPases measured in collecting ducts of normal and potassium-depleted mice reflect the functional expression of gastric and colonic H,K-ATPase, respectively.
