Radioactive tracer and electrical techniques were used to study the transport of nonelectrolytes and sodium, respectively, across toad urinary bladders in the presence and absence of ADH. The permeability of lipophilic molecules was roughly proportional to bulk phase oil/water partition coefficients both in the presence and absence of hormone; i.e., ADH elicited a general nonselective increase in the permeation of all nine solutes tested. The branched nonelectrolyte, isobutyramide, was less… CONTINUE READING
