  • a Mean of reservoir volume normalized to averaged liver weight

  • b Sinusoidal blood volume of liver, taken from Pang et al. (1988)

  • c Cellular water space of liver, taken from Pang et al. (1988)

  • d Calculated from data of Table 1; the data were scaled-up with the scaling factor (α/β, where α is 1.25 × 108 cells/g liver and β is 1 × 106 cells/mg protein)

  • e Fitted parameters when the metabolic activity, CLint,met, was distributed heterogeneously (10:30:60% of total intrinsic clearance at zones 1, 2, and 3, respectively)

  • f Fitted parameters when CLint,met was distributed homogeneously in zones 1, 2, and 3
