Effect of blood pH on anionic ferritin transport through rat aortic endothelium
- 14 Downloads
Acute lowering of blood pH between 7.4 and 6.9 in rats by ventilation with 10 or 20% CO2 does not increase the passage of ferritin molecules across the aortic endothelium. These results do not rule out alteration of endothelial permeability to anionic macromolecules in local circulatory disturbances when blood pH drops to levels much lower than 6.9.
