We have shown that the amiloride/novobiocin-sensitive sodium transport system of adult animal integuments is first observed in embryonic surface ectoderm and show here that this physiology is retained in this ectoderm following the closure of the neural folds. Unidirectional transport of Na+ out of the neural tube lumen results in a potential difference on… CONTINUE READING
