Effects of short chain fatty acids and carbon dioxide on magnesium transport across sheep rumen epithelium.

Abstract

Short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and CO2 have been shown to stimulate net Mg2+ efflux from the isolated reticulorumen in vivo. To investigate the underlying mechanisms of Mg2+ transport we performed Ussing chamber and microelectrode experiments and measured 28Mg2+ fluxes across sheep rumen epithelium in vitro. In the presence of SCFAs mucosal-to-serosal Mg2… (More)
