Calcium absorption by the midgut of the blowfly, Calliphora vicina

Calcium absorption by the midgut of the blowfly, Calliphora vicina

Journal of Experimental Biology 114: 551-561

Laboratory studies showed that the isolated mid-gut of adults of Calliphora vicina can be maintained under internal perfusion for over 6 h, and calcium absorption measured by including 45Ca in the perfusing saline with nulin as a volume marker. The mid-gut had a considerable capacity to transport calcium from the lumen (L) to the bathing saline (BS) against its electrochemical gradient and in the absence of an appreciable net water flux across the gut.
