In light of the direct influence of temperature on metabolic rates and dietary loads of ectotherms, intestinal responses were evaluated by measuring 1) dimensions, 2) transapical initial rates of transport using intact tissues and brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMV), and 3) BBMV fluidity using two size groups of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus)(More)
Although the influences of dietary carbohydrate and protein on intestinal brush border membrane functions are well known, the responses to different dietary lipids are less clear, particularly for ectotherms. Therefore, we examined intestinal brush border membrane phospholipid fatty acid composition and rates of glucose transport of catfish fed two diets(More)
