Various experiments are described that relate to measuring the uptake of plasma proteins by the walls of various large blood vessels of the rabbit. The rate of uptake across the intimal surface is not uniform, there being punctate regions of elevated transport. In addition, the rate of transport appears to be considerably higher across veins, pulmonary vessels, and the ascending aorta than across more peripheral arteries. Although larger proteins such as fibrinogen and low-density lipoprotein… CONTINUE READING
