Mucosal membranes of foregut epithelia of Aplysia californica contain a sodium/phosphate symporter. Triiodothyronine stimulated the absorptive activity of the sodium/phosphate symporter, whereas reverse triiodothyronine had no effect on the sodium/phosphate symporter. It appears that thyroid hormone or its molluscan equivalent plays a role in the overall regulation of phosphate homeostasis by the Aplysia californica gut.Key words: phosphate absorption, sodium/phosphate symporter, thyroid hormone, regulation.

Les membranes muqueuses des épithéliums de l'intestin antérieur de l'Aplysia californica contiennent un symport sodium/phosphate. La triiodothyronine a stimulé l'activité absorptive de ce symport alors que la triiodothyronine inverse n'a pas eu d'effet sur celui-ci. Il semble que l'hormone thyroïdienne, ou son équivalent chez les mollusques, joue un rôle dans la régulation globale de l'homéostasie du phosphate par l'intestin de l'Aplysia californica.Mots clés : absorption de phosphate, symport sodium/phosphate, hormone thyroïdienne, régulation.[Traduit par la Rédaction]
