Rates of diffusion through the extracellular space of thin sheets of myocardium from the right ventricular outflow tract of kittens were estimated at 23 degrees C for 45Ca2+ and an inert reference tracer, [14C]sucrose. The myocardial sheets were mounted in an Ussing chamber and equilibrated with Tyrode solution with varied calcium concentrations, Cao. The tracers were added to one side and their concentrations on the other side measured at 5-15-min intervals for 6 h. The apparent tracer… CONTINUE READING
