Transport of radiolabelled albumin in vivo has been measured in cornea. In anaesthetized rabbits, a 1-10 nl mixture of either 125I- or 131I-labelled human serum albumin and fluorescinthiocarbamoyldextran was injected with micropipettes under guidance of a fluorescent microscope. The injection sites were a spot 3 mm from limbus and the cornea centre, and the sites were localized by a template fitting the cornea exactly. Four, 12, 20 and 30 hr after the injection, the rabbits were reanaesthetized… CONTINUE READING
