1. Scanning electron microscopy of the intestinal epithelium in the cel showed an important mucus layer over the middle intestine. 2. Ion-selective microelectrodes (Na+, Cl−, K+) demonstrated several standing gradients of ion activities in the mucus layer. 3. The Na+ and Cl− gradients were identical and related to transepithelial NaCl absorption. They were cancelled by ouabain application on the serosal side. 4. Symmetrical substitution of Na+ or Cl− in the luminal and serosal Ringer solution… CONTINUE READING
