In vivo absorption of water and electrolytes in mouse intestine. Application to villin -/- mice.

This study was done to establish and validate a single-pass perfusion method for measuring the absorption of water and electrolytes by the mouse small intestine. The method was then used to study intestinal absorption in mice whose villin gene had been invalidated (v-/-). The single-pass perfusion of the jejunum measures the absorption of water, Cl(-), Na… CONTINUE READING
