Where can I find estimates/experimental measurements of the diffusion coefficient of glucose in mammal tissues? Specefically I mean the inter-cellular space. I'm not looking for a specific tissue, so some examples of values for some tissues, or a generic estimate, is enough for me.

And the same for lactate, although I presume it will be very similar.

  • $\begingroup$ This question cannot be answered as is. What do you mean by tissue ? Inter Cellular space ? Cytoplasm ? Nucleus ? Blood stream ? etc etc All of those media have very different diffusion properties. $\endgroup$ – Xqua Jan 27 '16 at 17:51
  • $\begingroup$ @Xqua I mean extracellular glucose, inside a tissue, so it's in the inter cellular space. I edited the question. $\endgroup$ – becko Jan 28 '16 at 13:52
