Four-day-old chick calvaria were used to determine the passive concentrations of magnesium, sodium, and potassium in metabolically poisoned bone. When incubated in buffers containing the blood levels of sodium and magnesium, these calvaria contained sodium and magnesium at the identical concentrations found in freshly dissected calvaria. Calvarial sodium and magnesium levels could be varied by altering the buffer concentrations of these cations. The potassium content of metabolically poisoned… CONTINUE READING
