Changes in the Patterns of Parvalbumin Expression During the Development of the Catfish Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch)
Exceptional thermal stability of parvalbumins has been employed to follow the ontogeny of parvalbumin isoforms in air-breathing catfish H. fossilis. Out of three isoforms separable by polyacrylamideExpand

Some aspects of osmoregulation in a stenohaline freshwater catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch), in different salinities
Transfer of the catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis, to 10% sea water (101 mosmol l−1) or to 0·4% NaCl (140 mosmol l−1) does not evoke any change in plasma osmolarity from the normal freshwater values.Expand

Effects of hypophysectomy on some osmoregulatory parameters of the catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch).
The catfish, H. fossilis, survives for long periods after hypophysectomy, although with impaired osmoregulatory mechanisms. Plasma osmolarity and cortisol levels decline significantly within 2 hrExpand
