1. Labeled glycerol influx (J G i ) in the cestode,Hymenolepis diminuta, occurs by diffusion and two mediated systems which were distinguished by their sensitivity to Na+ and inhibitors. The Na+-activated system had a maximal glycerol influx (J G i max) of 91.5 μmoles/g ethanol extracted dry wt/hr and an apparent transport constant (K t ) of 0.24 mM; fluxes… CONTINUE READING
