My research interest is functional physiology of electrolyte and Na-nutrient transporters in the in vivo and in vitro models of chronic enteritis. My current research focus is to decipher the intracellular mechanism involved in Ca++ and nitric oxide mediated regulation of SGLT1 (Sodium dependent glucose co-transport) and NHE3 (Sodium proton exchanger) transcription in stably transfected intestinal epithelial cells by either induce or inhibit the specific signaling pathway intermediates and their effect on SGLT1 and NHE3 activity.
