A phenomenon that has defied explanation for two decades is the time scale for transient reabsorption in the classic experiments of Michel and Phillips on individually perfused frog mesentery microvessels. One finds that transient reabsorption lasts <2 min before a new steady state of low filtration is established when the lumen pressure is abruptly dropped from a high to a low value. Our experiments in frog and rat venular microvessels under a variety of conditions revealed the same time trend… CONTINUE READING
