Both indicate a prominent role for the hindgut (rectum) in K + reabsorption. MTs also exhibit region-specific differences in Na + and K + flux rates that are coupled...

... and/or plant feeders, the entrance and exit of water is primarily executed along the alimentary tract, where the hindgut, particularly the rectum, is the major site of water conservation. A cDNA encoding the homologue of the water-specific Drosophila AQP [ Drosophila integral protein (DRIP)] was identified...

Localization of this CA within the lumen of the alimentary canal may be a key to larval...

... is achieved by adjusting the amounts of water lost with the faeces. The rectum is shown to be the principal site of water reabsorption from the faeces. The rate of rectal water absorption is shown to vary with the water content of the food and thus according to need. Water reabsorbed from the rectal contents...
