Seasonal variation in the active transporting ability and in the membrane ATPase activity of the frog intestinal epithelium.

Abstract

The active sugar and amino acid transport in the small intestine of the American leopard frog (Rana pipiens) and a species of European frog (Rana esculenta) decreases during the winter months. Parallel with this the (Na+, K+)-stimulated ("pump") ATPase activity is markedly depressed. No seasonal changes are observed in the intestine of the tropical bullfrog… (More)
