The effects of increasing concentrations of tannin isolated from cotton bracts and endotoxin prepared from Enterobacter agglomerans on the electrophysiologic and ion transport properties of the canine tracheal epithelium mounted in Ussing chambers were examined. Results were compared with those obtained using cotton bracts extract (CBE). Tannin concentrations in the isolated tannin and in the cotton bracts were analyzed spectrophotometrically. When added to the mucosal bathing solution, tannin… CONTINUE READING
