Ionic regulation is essential for the metabolism and cellular function. For many physiological processes, ionic calcium (Ca(+2)) is important for example muscle contractions, nerve signaling, membrane permeability, cell division and hormone release. In nerve cells, the excess intracellular concentration of Ca(+2) causes cell death. It has been shown that… (More)
Preoptic area (POA) plays an important role in the hormonal regulation of the pituitary gland in vertebrates. In this study we report the sexually dimorphic distribution of calcium-binding proteins calretinin (CR) in the POA in the freshwater catfish, Clarias batrachus. Nissl staining highlighted the presence of the nucleus praeopticus periventricularis… (More)
