Electrophysiology of the Salt Glands of Avicennia germinans.

Microelectrode techniques were used on epidermal peels of Avicennia germinans to characterize func- tional aspects of secretion in salt glands. Increasing the concentrations of K+, Na+, or Mg++ in the bath medium decreased the measured transcellular voltage and resistance. The velocity and magnitude...
