Abstract

Unidirectional sodium and bicarbonate ion fluxes were measured under short-circuit conditions across rabbit corneal endothelium. A net flux of bicarbonate was measured, direction tears to lens, however no net flux of sodium was measured. From these experiments it seems that the inequality between electrically measured short-circuit current and net trans-endothelial bicarbonate ion flux cannot be bridged by any supposed net sodium flux.
