Extracellular acidic pH-activated chloride channels (I(Cl, acid)) have been found in a variety of mammalian cells. In the present study, the expression and regulation of I(Cl,acid) were investigated in THP-1 cells. Patch clamp recordings demonstrated that an extracellular acidic solution induced an outward rectified current, which could be blocked by the Cl(-) channel blocker. The currents exhibited time-dependent facilitation and inactivation. The relative anion permeability of this current followed the sequence Cl(-)> Br(-)> I(-)>gluconate. NADPH oxidase inhibitors did not decrease pH 4.4 -induced currents. However, reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavengers and mitochondrial inhibitors inhibited pH 4.4 -induced currents. Fluorescence imaging of intracellular ROS and mitochondrial activity confirmed these findings. We conclude that I(Cl,acid) occurs in human THP-1 cells and that I(Cl,acid) may be regulated by intracellular ROS mainly originating from mitochondria.
