Sample text

By selectively controlling the passive diffusion of ions and small water-soluble molecules through the shunt pathway, the tight junction maintains any gradients created by the activity of pathways associated with the transcellular route. In leaky epithelia having electrical resistances of <1000 ohm cm–2, the shunt pathway is the major route for passive transepithelial flow. This is borne out by the work of Frizzell & Schultz (1972) who showed that at least 85% of passive ion flow across the fairly leaky epithelium of the small intestine takes the paracellular route.

12. The blood–brain barrier does not exclude the passage of small lipophilic molecules into the extracellular fluid compartment, as such molecules dissolve readily in the lipid components of plasma membranes. Water can also enter the brain by simple diffusion. Essential hydrophilic molecules that the brain consumes rapidly and in large quantities, such as glucose and amino acids, rapidly traverse the blood–brain barrier by means of facilitated diffusion. Similar carrier-mediated transport systems also move surplus substances out of the brain and into the blood.

Membranes are not in fact solely permeable to K+; they are also permeable to Cl–, and are not totally impermeable to Na+. indd 19 06/07/04, 14:18:53 20 Vitamins: their role in the human body vicinity of the membrane, therefore the bulk of the cytosol and extracellular fluid remains electrically neutral. The charge separation involves only a minute fraction of the total number of positive and negative charges that exist in the cell, so ion concentrations are practically unaffected. across membranes is influenced not only by the ion concentration gradient, but also by the membrane potential.
