The purpose of this study was to characterize phloridzin- and amiloride-sensitive transport across blood-gas barrier of hamster and rat lungs. Air spaces of isolated perfused lungs were instilled with a solution containing 22Na or L-[3H]glucose, D-[14C]glucose, and fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled dextran. Apparent permeability-surface area products (PS) were calculated. Phloridzin (Na(+)-dependent D-glucose transport inhibitor) had no effect on D-glucose or sodium transport out of air spaces… CONTINUE READING
