Unstirred layer thickness in perfused rat jejunum in vivo

  • D. Winne


The effective unstirred layer thickness in the rat jejunum perfused in vivo amounts to at least 530 μm. This value has been estimated from the absorption increase ofl-phenylalanine due to better mixing of the luminal solution by air bubbles.
