  author={Roger G. Gosden and Ronald Henry Fraser Hunter},
The transmural potential difference and short-circuit current of the porcine Graafian follicle have been measured in an attempt to test whether antral fluid accumulates as a result of active transport of salt. The values obtained by mounting explants of follicle wall in Ussing chambers were close to zero and the specific electrical resistance was only 59 Ω·cm2. The elemental composition of the follicular fluid was similar to that of ovarian venous plasma with the exception of follicular Na… CONTINUE READING
