Table 1 In vivo and in vitro oxygen measurements.

From: The influence of oxygen tension on the structure and function of isolated liver sinusoidal endothelial cells

  In vivo In vitro
  Portal vein Hepatic vein Hepatic artery 5%CO2/95% air 5%CO2/5%O2
Oxygen tension (kPa) 7.22 (± 0.9) 6.70 (± 0.3) 20.9 (± 4.6) 18.46 (± 1.2) 7.39 (± 0.9)
  1. Blood samples were collected from the indicated vascular beds and from 24 h-conditioned culture supernatants. Glass capillary tubes were used to avoid equilibration of the samples with atmospheric oxygen. The total oxygen content in the samples is given in kilo Pascals (kPa). The results are representative data obtained from three independent measurements.
