A previously described method (1) allows the observation of swelling and shrinking of the epithelial cells of the isolated toad skin, when the solution bathing either the outer or inner side of the skin is modified. Thus, the concentration of probing molecules of graded size, isotonic to the epithelial cells, across each face of the isolated toad skin can be determined. These concentrations have been used for the estimation of the equivalent pore radius at the outer and inner face of the skin… CONTINUE READING
