The article presents information about influence of histamine on transcapillary protein and fluid movement in several vascular beds. The influence of histamine upon the microvasculature has been generally accepted to be an increase in capillary hydrostatic pressure, which results in increased transcapillary fluid movement. In addition, histamine has been reported to increase transcapillary protein movement. The present work demonstrates significant increases in transcapillary protein and fluid transport in the intestine and the liver during histamine infusion.

    The ease with which inorganic 32P may be washed from protein precipitates with T.C.A. has been investigated. It is concluded that inorganic 32P may be removed from denatured liver protein with 5-8 washes of T.C.A. The addition of inorganic 32P to denatured liver protein containing 32P in the...
