The permeability of capillaries in the isolated, vascularly perfused cat ileum was studied with the double-indicator diffusion technique. The molecules studied were raffinose, inulin, and beta-lactoglobulin A. Plasma flow through the tissue was increased by local intra-arterial infusions of isoproterenol (a selective mucosal vasodilator) or adenosine (a dilator of the muscularis vasculature). The permeability-surface area product (PS) for all solutes increased with increasing plasma flow. At… CONTINUE READING
