1. Frog abdominal skins were placed between the two half-cells of a modified version of Ussing's frog skin apparatus.2. The rate of equilibration of deuterated and tritiated water across the skin was followed at pH 5.0, 6.9, and 8.0 with Ringer solution bathing both surfaces of the skin; and at pH 7.0 with sulphate Ringer solution bathing both surfaces of… (More)
