Die Gewebe des Menschen und der Säugetiere: Ein Atlas zum Studium für Mediziner und Biologen

In der vorliegenden 2. Auflage dieses erfolgreichen Atlas wurden nach kritischer Durchsicht und Analayse Fehler korrigiert, einige Texte zur Beseitigung von Unklarheiten ge{ndert und mehrere Bildtafeln vervollst{ndigtoder neu gezeichnet, um mit den j}ngsten Forschungsergebnissen auf dem Gebiet der Histologie Schritt zu halten.

NaCl Transport in Epithelia

After the pioneering reports through Ussing and associates, reviews of epithelial Nael shipping have come some distance. the 1st part of the phenomenological description of the telephone as a black field has been stick with­ ed by means of reports of mobile mechanisms, the interaction of different trans­ port parts, and the mechanisms of law.

Plant Adaptation to Environmental Change: Significance of Amino Acids and their Derivatives

Vegetation continuously take care of damaging surroundings stipulations, which frequently hinder them attaining their complete genetic capability when it comes to progress, improvement and productiveness. This publication covers crops' responses to those environmental alterations, specifically, the modulation of amino acids, peptides and amines to strive against either biotic and abiotic rigidity elements.

Another sample is taken after a normal expiration. Samples are analysed, and the mean of two results taken. —Nitrogen, 80·5 p e r c e n t ; carbon dioxide, 5-5 per cent ; oxygen, 14 per cent. — Normal expiration contains 500 c . c. of this is from 'dead space', and its composition is practically that of the atmosphere. Expired air contains 4-38 per cent of carbon dioxide. Alveolar air constitutes only —— = — J 500 25 of total air. Hence carbon dioxide in alveolar air is 18 4-38 -f- — = 6 per cent.

Stimulate nervi erigentes (1st to 4th sacral) : erection of penis. 3. Stimulate sciatic with slowly interrupted shocks : limb swells in a plethysmograph. Or cut sciatic, wait a day or two for vasoconstrictors to die, then stimulate : limb swells. 4. Stimulate posterior nerve-roots : vasodilatation occurs. When any skin area is injured, a reflex vasodilatation occurs. After application of a tourniquet, vasodilatation occurs when it is removed. I t is suggested that the axon of a sensory nerve divides, one twig going to the skin and another to the vessels, allowing axon reflexes.

Records, by means of tambours connected by rubber tubes with writing points, the apex-beat (often omitted), the radial pulse, the jugular pulse, and the time simultaneously. The electrocardiograph. The output (nitrous-oxide method). (See p. ) In the animal heart other methods are available ; the frog or tortoise heart will go on beating outside the body, and so will the mammalian heart if perfused with warm Ringer's fluid containing glucose and oxygen. The glucose is gradually used up. (Ringer's fluid contains NaCl 0-7 per cent, KC1 0-03 per cent, CaCl 0-025 per cent (Howell).
