Electrolyte Activities in Cl-Transporting Epithelia: Cortical Thick Ascending Limb of Rabbit Nephron and Rectal Gland Tubules of the Spiny Dogfish, Squalus acanthias

  • R. Greger

Abstract

The present contribution is aimed at summarizing mainly technical aspects of how ion activity measurements can be obtained in the cortical thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle of rabbit kidney (cTAL segment) and in rectal gland tubules (RGT segments). Intentionally, we omit an explicit discussion of how ion activity measurements in both preparations lead to cellular models. In this respect, the reader is referred to recent articles [7,11].
