Equations are developed that describe the steady-state relationships among ion fluxes, solute fluxes, water flow, voltage, concentration of solute, and hydrostatic pressure in a spherically symmetrical syncytial tissue. Each cell of the syncytium is assumed to have membrane channels for Na, K, and Cl, a membrane pump for Na/K, and some concentration of intracellular protein of net negative charge. However, the surface cells and inner cells of the tissue are assumed to have different… CONTINUE READING
