Fig. 8), whereas a decreased volume is accompanied by transport inhibition. Though there is too little information for a more detailed analysis of these relationships, several points are apparent. Increases in transepithelial transport under isosmotic conditions are not normally produced as a secondary consequence of increased cell volume. Instead, it is the change in transport which modifies the volume and the pattern of the relationship is quite different from that observed in response to altered medium osmolarity.

For example, in a study of toad bladder using X-ray microanalysis to measure the composition of individual epithelial cells, Civan et al. (1980) observed large differences in ion composition from cell to cell after exposure to ouabain and following incubation in a potassium-free medium. We have recently confinned this in a much more extensive study using X-ray microanalysis (Macknight et al. 1989). Such cell to cell variation suggests that individual cells were in different transport states prior to the inhibition of transepithelial transport.
