In vitro perfusion studies of the human placenta. VI. Evidence against active glucose transport.


Previous studies in our laboratory using "in vitro" perfusion have established that glucose transport across the human placenta is a carrier-mediated process. It is not known whether these carriers require the expenditure of metabolic energy to function. In the experiments presented here we demonstrate in the perfused placenta that there is not reduction in… (More)
