Volume changes of the transverse tubular system (T system) of frog sartorius in different solutions can be explained by a model which assumes fixed negative charges in the T system lumen, an open T system mouth, and a Donnan equilibrium between the T system and external solution. The T system volume is regulated by the osmotic pressure difference between the lumen and external solution, as well as by constraining forces whose nature is as yet unclear. The decreased swelling tendency produced by… CONTINUE READING
