Hepatocytes extract, metabolize, and excrete various bile acids and non-bile acid organic anions. The transporters for these two classes of compounds are unrelated, although the bromosulfophthalein (BSP)/bilirubin transporter can mediate Na(+)-independent transport of several bile acids. This may explain previous observations of inhibition of organic anion(More)
The ultrastructure of the glomus cells of the carotid labyrinth was investigated in the anuran, Xenopus laevis. These cells show many catecholamine containing granules. About 50 cells in groups of 3–5 are located near the sinusoids. Morphologically, their organelles are similar to those previously reported in Bufo vulgaris. Striking features are (1)(More)
The anatomical structure of oxygen-sensitive receptors in branchio-cardiac veins of a crayfish (Astacus leptodactylus) was studied with fluorescence and electron microscopy. Fluorescent cells were observed in the wall of a restricted part of the branchio-cardiac veins which was electrophysiologically shown to be a chemoreceptor region. Electron microscopy(More)
