The effect of mucosal La3+ on electrical parameters of isolated frog skins was studied on isolated frog skins with normally polarized or depolarized apical membrane. La3+ increases Rs, the paracellular or shunt resistance and diminishes RNa, the resistance of the active sodium path, in both polarized and depolarized skins. The stimulatory effect of La3+ on short-circuit current (Is.c.) is correlated with this decrease in RNa. The characteristics of the stimulatory effect are: very rapid onset… CONTINUE READING
