Abstract

Experiments were performed to obtain a deeper understanding of the biophysics of water transport between the cellular and extracellular components at the tissue level during freezing in mammalian liver. The results compare well with single cell as well as tissue level freezing studies. The magnitude of the liver tissue water transport parameters are within the range of reported values for parameters obtained for single isolated, cultured, and digested rat hepatocytes. The geometry or structure of cellular embedment in liver tissue may be the factor dominating the differences in water transport between tissue cells compared to cells in single isolated form.
