Lymphatic transport and organ uptake of gelatin and hyaluronan injected into the rat mesentery.


The metabolic pathways of denatured collagen (gelatin) and hyaluronan were studied by injecting labelled macromolecules into the mesentery of rats. The label, [125]tyramine-cellobiose is trapped intracellularly after endocytosis, allowing localization of the site of uptake. Mesenteric and thoracic lymph was sampled for 6 h in anaesthetized rats.
