... in the activity of basolateral Na + /K + -ATPase (NKA) and apical V-type H + -ATPase (VA) and (2) region-specific Na + and K + flux rates. 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...

... rapid than the response of the ileum and rectum to hindgut stimulants. Taken together, these data suggest that, in the initial phase of post-prandial diuresis, urine flow will exceed fluid uptake in the hindgut, thereby allowing excess water to be eliminated. References Audsley , N. , Coast...

J H is similar (1.5 μ equiv cm _2 h _1 ) in recta and ilea. Addition of cyclic AMP inhibits J H across the rectum by 42–66 %, but has...

... 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...
