1. The renal clearance of dextran of different molecular sizes has been measured in normal humans from 6 days to 61 years of age. Gel chromatography of dextran has been used for determination of molecular weight distribution. 2. Information about the functional ultrastructure of the glomerular membrane has been deduced from the experimental clearance data in the light of theoretical models. The glomerular membrane was here visualized as a gel filter, localized in the basement membrane. The… CONTINUE READING
