of water or small organic molecules.
The in vitro transcellular transport
across Caco-2 monolayers showed a decrease in b-a transport and an increase in a-b transport of R123 in the presence of Curcuma extracts assuming to be due to changes in efflux activity in response to components in these extracts (Fig.
In this segment, the transcellular transport
rates of sodium and chloride are quite high, but because the paracellular pathway is highly permeable to water, high sodium and chloride concentration gradients between the lumen and the interstitium are not generated.
