Although it is well established that NHE is activated by low pHi and shrinkage, the signaling mechanism by which this antiporter is activated in corneal epithelial cells is not well understood, particularly the signal transduction pathways mediating steady-state pHi maintenance and hypertonic stress-induced NHE activation. The signaling pathway activating pHi recovery has been partially elucidated for acidic loading conditions in bovine corneal epithelia (66). This clarification stemmed from studies of the effects of the cytokine endothelin (ET) on this process.
An osmosensitive taurine transporter gene and its protein expression were also described for human corneal epithelial cells (109). This transporter’s activity is sodium dependent, and is manifested under isotonic conditions. Exposure to a hypertonic challenge increases its function in a time-dependent manner proportional to the magnitude of the stress. , an initial elevation, followed by declines in gene and protein expression, and return to isotonic levels after 48 hours, suggesting that these changes are under feedback control.
Unpublished data) (Fig. 5). , unpublished data) (Fig. 6); washout fails to restore the decreased levels to normal. Ca2+ transients are components of some signaling pathways, which mediate innate immunity in response to bacterial exposure through activation of toll-like receptors (TLRs). There are 11 different TLR subtypes (TLR1-11), all of which respond to bacterial challenge. , interleukin-8 (IL-8). As corroborated by several other studies, Ca2+ influx is a component of such signaling, provided that the TLR5 coreceptor, asialoGM1, is activated.
