1. The osmotic pressure of the liquid phase of the contents of the small intestine is always hypertonic to plasma and not affected by egg formation. 2. Chloride concentration is higher during shell calcification, sodium and calcium concentrations increase at the end of shell deposition while calcium concentration shows a cyclic variation with a maximum 18 h after ovulation. 3. The relationships between the ions and water of the duodenum and upper jejunum are modified by egg formation: the… CONTINUE READING
