... nonflying mammals ( Akodon montensis, Mus musculus and Rattus norvegicus ). Using standard pharmacokinetic techniques in intact animals, we confirmed the greater paracellular nutrient absorption in the fliers, comparing one species in each group. Then we conducted in situ intestinal perfusions on...
