The nature of the transmural electrical potential difference and the characteristics of water and electrolyte transport by rabbit esophagus were determined with in vivo and in vitro studies. The potential difference of the perfused esophagus in vivo was -28 +/- 3 mV (lumen negative). In vitro the potential difference was -17.9 +/- 0.6 mV, the short-circuit current 12.9 +/- 0.6 muA/cm2, and the resistance 1,466 +/- 43 ohm-cm2. Net mucosal-to-serosal sodium transport from Ringer solution in the… CONTINUE READING
