In 6 experiments, the canine biliary tract was found to be electrically positive with reference to the liver capsule, and potentials ranging from 3 to 15 mv. were demonstrated. Intraportal infusion of a solution of dextrose and insulin caused a brief fall in potential in 4 of 6 experiments, followed by a sharp increase in all animals. Hepatic necrosis produced by carbon tetrachloride was associated with a marked fall in potential.
