... organic substances and compensate their osmolarity by lowering cytosolic Cl – concentrations. Following cell shrinkage, regulatory cell volume increase is accomplished by ion uptake (activation of Na + , K + , 2Cl – cotransport, Na + /H + exchange in – parallel to Cl – /HCO3 exchange and Na + channels...
