Imagine that you are investigating the transepithelial transport


Question Description:

35

Imagine that you are investigating the transepithelial transport of radioactive glucose. Intestinal epithelial cells are grown in culture to form a complete sheet so that the fluid bathing the apical domain of the cells (top) is completely separated from the fluid bathing the basolateral domain of the cells (bottom). A finite amount of radioactive glucose is added to the atypical medium and the appearance of radioactivity in the basolateral medium is monitored in terms of counts per milliliter (cpm/ml), a measure of radioactivity per unit volume. I have attached the graphs and questions following. I really appreciate any help that can be provided. ATTACHMENT PREVIEW Download attachment IMG_3947.JPG
