Human red cell permeability to the homologous series of methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, n-butanol, and n-hexanol was determined in tracer efflux experiments by the continuous flow tube method, whose time resolution is 2-3 ms. Control experiments showed that unstirred layers in the cell suspension were less than 2 X 10(-4) cm, and that permeabilities less than or equal to 10(-2) cm s-1 can be determined with the method. Alcohol permeability varied with the chain length (25 degrees C): Pmeth 3.7 X… CONTINUE READING
