Abstract

Summary

crude toxins and purified toxin A had similar effects on stripped rabbit ileal mucosa in Ussing chambers. Both toxin preparations caused secretion of sodium and chloride ions by increasing serosa to mucosa (s→m) fluxes. Transmural potential difference and resistance decreased after toxin treatment. Onset of changes in electrical measurements and ion fluxes coincided with onset of histological changes. The response to theophylline was greatly reduced in toxintreated tissue compared with control tissue.
