Changes of peritubular transmembrane potential were recorded in the Triturus proximal tubular cell during envenomation with the Russell's viper. The action of the venom on transmembrane potential was found to be concentration dependent. The results were compared with actions of 2 - 4 dinitrophenol (DNP). on the depolarization of cell membrane and were discussed in the role of venom on the mechanism of transport of ions across the cell membrane.
