    Abstract

    1. 1. Transepidermal uptake of leucine is demonstrated in Dentrocoelum lacteum and Polycelis tenuis. 2. 2. Uptake is mediated. 3. 3. However, the levels of uptake are low compared with marine invertebrates. 4. 4. No antero-posterior gradient in uptake is discovered but this pattern might have been obscured by gonadal activity.
