The paradigm has long held that the epithelial Na channel ENaC, in conjunction with paracellular Cl- absorption, is the major path for salt absorption in the collecting duct whereas NCC is the main salt absorbing transporter in the DCT. Studies over the last decade have identified several new players in transcellular chloride and/or sodium reabsorption in the collecting duct (CD), including the Cl-/HCO3- exchanger Slc26a4 (pendrin), the Na+- dependent Cl-/HCO3- exchanger Slc4a8 (NDCBE), and the...
