Example text

1978). This is not a question that can be addressed using techniques, such as short-circuit current, which monitor the average behaviour of the myriads of cells which comprise an epithelial sheet. There are indications, however, that there may be considerable variations from cell to cell in the number of transport pathways available in the plasma membranes. For example, in a study of toad bladder using X-ray microanalysis to measure the composition of individual epithelial cells, Civan et al. (1980) observed large differences in ion composition from cell to cell after exposure to ouabain and following incubation in a potassium-free medium.

Unfortunately, it has proved extremely difficult to obtain good estimates of plasma membrane osmotic water permeabilities in leaky epithelia; a difficulty that reflects the complex geometry of the tissue and the problem of estimating and correcting for the contributions of un stirred layers (Barry and Diamond 1984). Of particular interest are the cells in urinary epithelia such as the mammalian collecting ducts and amphibian urinary bladders, where apical membrane water permeability is controlled by antidiuretic hormone.
