We have measured the dilution and biionic potentials across the isolated rabbit corneal endothelium in order to learn about the ionic selectivity of its intercellular junctions. Single-salt dilution potentials have been measured as a function of [NaCl] or [NaHCO3] gradients across the tissue. Biionic potentials were similarly measured by replacing Na+ with K+ on either side of the tissue. The potentials thus measured were fit to the constant field equation and to an approximation of it to… CONTINUE READING
