[en] We examined the effects of thiamine derivatives on ion uptake in rat brain membrane vesicles. Thiamine triphosphate (1 mM) and pyrithiamine (0.1 mM) increase chloride uptake. Preincubation of crude homogenate with thiamine or pyrithiamine increases chloride uptake while oxythiamine has the reverse effect. Thiamine and oxythiamine also affect 22Na+ and 86Rb+ uptake in the same way as for 36Cl- but to a lesser extent. Thiamine-dependent 36Cl- uptake is activated by sodium bicarbonate (10 mM) and partially inhibited by bumetanide (0.1 mM) and 2,4-dinitrophenol (0.1 mM). Preincubation with thiamine increases the thiamine triphosphate content of the vesicles. The hypothesis that TTP is the activator of a particular chloride uptake mechanism is discussed.
