Effects of SNP, ouabain, and amiloride on electrical potential profile of isolated sheep pleura
The fluid and solute transport properties of pleural tissue were studied by using specimens of intact visceral and parietal pleura from adult sheep lungs. The samples were transferred to the laboratory in a Krebs-Ringer ...
Rapid effect of progesterone on transepithelial resistance of human fetal membranes: Evidence for non-genomic action
1. The factors that regulate human fetal membrane transport mechanisms are unknown. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of progesterone on transepithelial electrical resistance (R-TE) in the human ...
Role of Electrolytes and Glucose in the Insulin-Induced Electrochemical Effect in Sheep Pleura
Aim: Insulin induces electrochemical alterations in sheep visceral and parietal pleura, an effect abolished by the Na(+)-channel blocker amiloride and the Na(+)-K(+) pump inhibitor ouabain. The aim of this study was to ...
Permeability Alterations after Surgical Trauma in Normal Rabbit Peritoneum
Background: To investigate whether surgical trauma in a rabbit adhesion formation model and the administration of normal saline (N/S), icodextrin (ID) and/or dimetindene maleate (DM) changes the permeability of the normal ...
