Abstract/OtherAbstract:
1. The permeability of the isolated turtle urinary bladder to ammonia was investigated by varying the ratio of NH3 to NH4+ concentration in the serosal bath and measuring the flux of ammonia into the mucosal bath. 2. The permeability of the turtle bladder to NH3 was in the range of 5.4-6.1 x 10(-3) cm/sec and the permeability of the unstirred layer to NH4+ was in the range of 1.1-2.1 x 10(-5) cm/sec. 3. The flux of ammonia calculated from the permeability of NH3 can account for the decrease in mucosal H+ secretion observed with addition of NH4Cl to the serosal bath.
