Effect of endothelin-1 on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
The mesothelium is part of the peritoneal barrier that manages the water and ion transport essential for peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. In addition, it has a central role in the pathogenesis of peritoneal fibrosis and ...
Inhibition by mercuric chloride of aquaporin-1 in the parietal sheep peritoneum: an electrophysiologic study
The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In this study, we used Ussing-chamber experiments to investigate the effect of HgCl2, an aquaporin-1 inhibitor, on the transmesothelial ...
Effect of sodium-potassium pump inhibition by ouabain on the permeability of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
The permeability for small solutes and the ultrafiltration capacity of the peritoneum are essential for effective peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. Elucidation of the factors that regulate these two properties is therefore ...
Enhancement of the transmesothelial resistance of the parietal sheep peritoneum by epinephrine in vitro: Ussing-type chamber experiments
The peritoneal mesothelium constitutes an ion transport barrier that is taken advantage of in peritoneal dialysis. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of epinephrine on the electrical transmesothelial ...
mu-Opioid stimulation of isolated parietal sheep peritoneum decreases peritoneal permeability in vitro
The peritoneal mesothelium is one of the main barriers to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In a previous study, we showed the existence of a micro-opioid influence on the in vitro ionic permeability of serosal membranes ...
Influence of the sodium transport inhibition by amiloride on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In the present study, we used Ussing chamber experiments to investigate the effect of amiloride on the transmesothelial electrical resistance ...
