Abstract

myo-Inositol uptake was investigated in a murine neuroblastoma clone (N1E-115) to determine the effect of altered Na+,K+-ATPase activity. The Na+ ionophore monensin, and veratridine, an alkaloid affecting voltage-dependent Na+ entry, increased acute 22Na+ uptake and 22Na+ efflux from pre-loaded cells, concomitant with enhanced myo-inositol uptake. This effect was also seen following insulin. Insulin-stimulated myo-inositol uptake was inhibited by amiloride, ouabain and pyrithiamine. Amiloride inhibition suggests that activation of Na+/H+ exchange preceding Na+,K+-ATPase activation is involved in insulin stimulation of myo-inositol uptake. Pyrithiamine inhibition is an indication of prior act..
