The direct buffering of the culture fluid is generally much less efficient than the buffering of the blood, for the latter depends largely on the high concentration of haemoglobin available in the erythrocytes. Again, the question of local p H values may be of great importance, and it is likely that some cells in the body are adapted to different hydrogen-ion concentrations from others; to give an example which is perhaps extreme, the venous bloods leaving the pancreas and the stomach mucosa during periods of active secretion present the endothelia of their respective venous channels with media which must at least have very different alkali reserves if not actually different hydrogen-ion concentrations.

Nor does it necessarily follow the movement of N a +. Sulphate ions have also been shown to be of importance to some types of cell, particularly to those concerned with the production of sulphated polysaccharides either internally, as in goblet cells, or externally as in cartilage cells (Pelc and Gliicksmann, 1951; Jennings and Florey, 1956; Johnston and Comer, 1957). O n the other hand, a keratinizing epithelium, which requires sulphur for the production of keratin, must be supplied with cysteine, cystine or methionine.

The far-reaching results which have since been obtained by the use of this technique and its subsequent modifications form the subject matter for Chapter 12, from which it will be appreciated that this simple method of Tissue Culture has much to offer in this field of genetical study. Brief reference has already been made to extracts of embryonic tissues. Since such extracts have been and still are widely used to stimulate growth in cultures, it may be of interest to give some brief account of their properties, though the improvement in synthetic media promises to lessen their importance.
