The intercalated cell of collecting ducts of the kidney is of two forms, the α form secretes acid, whereas the β form secretes HCO(3). Here, we review recent work that shows that the α form is derived from the β form and that the pathway is mediated by an extracellular matrix protein called hensin/DMBT1.
