Alteration of membrane fusion as a cause of acute pancreatitis in the rat


Infusion of supramaximal doses of cerulein induces acute edematous pancreatitis in the rat. Cannulation of the main pancreatic duct does not prevent the formation of the edema but reveals an almost complete reduction of pancreatic flow. Using freeze-fracture techniques and thin-section electron microscopy, earliest structural alterations were observed at… (More)
