Diffusion of Oxygen and Hydrogen Gas is Faster Through a Layer of Suspended Cultured C6 Cells than Through the Medium
The gas diffusion in the living cerebral cortex has been reported by Gotoh et al. to be faster than that in the dead cortex (Gotoh, Tazaki and Meyer, 1961). This was attributed by them to a mixing effect due to the vasomotor action of the microvasculature in the tissue, by which gas molecules could be transported to far distant areas. The present study examined whether or not such a facilitated process persisted even in a cell suspension where the microcirculation was deprived.
