The teleost gill carries out NaCl uptake in freshwater (FW) and NaCl excretion in seawater (SW). This transformation with salinity requires close regulation of ion transporter capacity and epithelial permeability. This study investigates the regulation of tight-junctional claudins during salinity acclimation in fish. We identified claudin 3- and claudin(More)
Proteins in the claudin family are a main component of tight junctions and form a seal that modulates paracellular transport in intestinal epithelium. This research tests the hypothesis that claudins 3, 5, and 16 will appear in the epithelium of embryonic intestine during functional differentiation. Immunohistochemistry is utilized to explore the(More)
