Drosophila Kc cells use at least two mechanisms for chloride uptake. These transport systems can be distinguished by their kinetic properties and by their differential sensitivity to various drugs. One transport system predominates at [Cl−]0 below 30 mM and is greater than fivefold more sensitive to disulfonic stilbenes than the second system. At [Cl−]0 above 30 mM, the predominant uptake mechanism is inhibited by vanadate and nitrate.
