Mouse liver transmembrane potential (Vm), measured under steady-state conditions with conventional microelectrodes, was -40 +/- 0.6 mV, and intracellular Na+ and K+ activities, measured with liquid ion-exchanger ion-sensitive microelectrodes, were 17 +/- 2 and 104 +/- 4 mM, respectively. The corresponding K+ and Na+ equilibrium potentials (EK and ENa) were(More)
According to some authors, the buccal space is incompletely closed with no real anatomical separation from the masticator space, and also has no fascial limit toward the cranial and caudal regions. However, several other authors consider this anatomic area to be a separated space. The goal of this study was to provide a detailed description of the normal(More)
Effects of L-alanine, 2-(methylamino)isobutyric acid (MeAIB), and quinine on mouse hepatocyte transmembrane potential (Vm) are compared with effects of quinine on MeAIB transport into isolated mouse hepatocytes in primary monolayer culture. In liver slices, L-alanine (10 mM) decreased Vm 6 +/- 0.4 mV from control Vm (-37 +/- 0.2 mV). With L-alanine still(More)
