Both the net effects and the mechanisms of action of intracellular pH (pHi) perturbations upon vascular tone have been investigated. pHi was modified using two procedures; NH4Cl application and withdrawal (NH4Cl pulse) and organic salt application. NH4Cl application and its subsequent withdrawal have been found to produce intracellular alkalinity and acidity, respectively, in various non-vascular (Roos and Boron, 1981; Thomas, 1984) as well as vascular tissues (Spurway and Wray, 1987). Application of weak organic salts has been found to decrease pHi in various tissues (Roos and Boron, 1981).
