Abstract

Vasopressin (ADH) and mezerein (MZ) induce transmembrane waterflow through water channels inserted into the apical plasma membrane. The water channels are then recycled into the cytosol during retrieval following withdrawal of vasopressin or mezerein. Water flow measurement indicated a slower rate of water loss from tissues with continuous presence of ADH in contrast to an increased rate of water flow from tissues with removal of ADH and intermittent buffer changes. These suggest that membrane remodeling is a spontaneous process following hormonal stimulation, and that the remodeling process continues until the apical membrane undergoes complete recovery.
