S0859, an N-cyanosulphonamide compound, reversibly inhibit NBC-mediated pH(i) recovery (K (i)=1.7 microM, full inhibition at approximately 30 microM).
Na(+)-coupled HCO(3)(-) transporters (NBCs) mediate the transport of bicarbonate ions across cell membranes and are thus ubiquitous regulators of intracellular pH. NBC dysregulation is associated with a range of diseases; for instance, NBCn1 is strongly up-regulated in a model of ErbB2-dependent breast cancer, a malignant and widespread cancer with no targeted treatment options, and single-nucleotide polymorphisms in NBCn1 genetically link to breast cancer development and hypertension. Treatment with NBC inhibitor S0859 significantly increased caspase-3 activity and elevated the number of apoptotic EC. S0859 is potentially important for probing the transporter/'s functional role in heart and other tissues.
