The role of periosteal and endosteal cellular envelopes in the control of the K+ and Na+ content of embryonic chick calvaria was investigated. Data have been presented which suggest that the K+ in extracellular fluid of calvaria may be under a direct membrane control similar to the pump-leak systems hypothesized for most cells. Based on DNA and K+ analysis of cell water, volume and DNA content, the K+ in the bone extracellular fluid was calculated to account for 75% of the total K+ content of… CONTINUE READING
