The solute accumulation parameter, r, in the permeating soil column was determined by the following equation of Johnson et al.
A parameter sensitivity analysis has been carried out and the results showed with increasing aqueous flow rate increases the concentration of solute at outlet of shell and tube side of hollow-fiber membrane extractor.
Water moves in the body by osmosis, shifting passively from an area with a low concentration of solutes to an area where the number of solutes is higher.
Typically, individuals on a regular diet generate 1000 mOsm/day of solute from dietary sources and protein catabolism that must be excreted in the urine (8).
To our knowledge, this study is the first to shed some light on the possible occurrence of water and solute movement via AQPs in the urinary bladder epithelium in the detrusor overactivity induced by BOO.
Because osmosis is a function of both solute concentration and pressure, it should never be defined strictly as a movement of water from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration.
A comparison of the CVs for the solutes in DW and GW indicated that the solute concentrations in the DW changed more rapidly than the GW (Table 2).
Assuming that the dialysate may be a preferred alternative for continuous monitoring of solute removal and adequacy of dialysis, the HPLC analysis of both serum and dialysate samples would be valuable as a source of information.
There are seven amino acid transporters in solute carrier family 1, five high-affinity glutamate transporters and two neutral amino acid transporters (Kanai and Hediger, 2004).
The amount of fluid ingested in proportion to the amount of total body water is generally not enough to influence the pH of the system, chemical buffers within the body can respond to alterations in pH in milliseconds and the total concentration of hydrogen (H+) ions in the blood is 40 nmol/L while the concentration sodium (the main effective solute in the body) is 140 mmol/L (~3.
Diffusion refers to the movement of solute across a semipermeable membrane from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration.
