Changes in blood plasma volume in rats during ontogenesis

Changes in blood plasma volume in rats during ontogenesis The dynamics of blood plasma volume were studied for the first time in rats during ontogenesis. The significance of blood plasma volume is estimated in the transport of physiologically active substances to cells and target organs during development. The blood plasma volume was measured in male and female rats during embryogenesis on day 18 (E18), perinatal development on E21 and day 3 of postnatal development (P3), and postnatal development on P15 and P30. Blood plasma volume was measured using Evans Blue dye method. Body mass was determined in the same animals and correlation was estimated between the blood plasma volume and body mass. The plasma volume increased 1.9-fold from E18 to E21, 1.4-fold from E21 to P3, 2.1-fold from P3 to P15, and 3.4-fold from P15 to P30. The body mass increased 5-fold from E18 to E21, 2-fold from E21 to P3, 2.3-fold from P3 to P15, and 3.2-fold from P15 to P30. The ratio of blood plasma to body mass was the highest on E18 (19%) and decreased twice by E21. This index varied from 5.4 to 4.8% during postnatal development. No sex-related differences in these indices were found in rats. The results obtained make it possible to determine the total content of physiologically active substances on the basis of their plasma concentration and, thereby, estimate the efficiency of secretory organs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Developmental Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

The dynamics of blood plasma volume were studied for the first time in rats during ontogenesis. The significance of blood plasma volume is estimated in the transport of physiologically active substances to cells and target organs during development. The blood plasma volume was measured in male and female rats during embryogenesis on day 18 (E18), perinatal development on E21 and day 3 of postnatal development (P3), and postnatal development on P15 and P30. Blood plasma volume was measured using Evans Blue dye method. Body mass was determined in the same animals and correlation was estimated between the blood plasma volume and body mass. The plasma volume increased 1.9-fold from E18 to E21, 1.4-fold from E21 to P3, 2.1-fold from P3 to P15, and 3.4-fold from P15 to P30. The body mass increased 5-fold from E18 to E21, 2-fold from E21 to P3, 2.3-fold from P3 to P15, and 3.2-fold from P15 to P30. The ratio of blood plasma to body mass was the highest on E18 (19%) and decreased twice by E21. This index varied from 5.4 to 4.8% during postnatal development. No sex-related differences in these indices were found in rats. The results obtained make it possible to determine the total content of physiologically active substances on the basis of their plasma concentration and, thereby, estimate the efficiency of secretory organs.
