Example text

This can be explained by a slight decrease in the effective peritoneal vascular surface area (reflected by small solute transport) during the same period. This allows a greater amount of glucose in the peritoneal cavity to maintain a crystalloid osmotic gradient. Or it possibly suggests an upregulation of AQP-1 [10]. The contribution of FWT to TCUF continued thereafter, together with an increase in small solute transport, meaning that the contribution of SCWT decreased. Possibly an increase in the resistance of the peritoneal membrane to fluid transport, as judged from a decreasing hydraulic permeability in this study and a hypothetical greater amount of AQP-1s in the increase vascular surface area can be of importance in this finding.

Cell membrane, namely kind off blebbing. Then cells enter into the execution phase the duration of which is around 90 h, showing besides the blebbing of the plasma membrane, fast shrinkage of the cytoplasm that becomes denser, as well as condensation of the nuclear chromatin. Typically, nuclei appear as compact, kidney-shaped structures (fig. 1b). Cells undergoing apoptosis can also be identified by means of immunohistochemistry (TUNEL or annexin staining). Finally, the common pathway of most apoptotic cells is phagocytosis by healthy, younger neighbors or by phagocytes, without any inflammatory reaction (fig.
