Osmoregulation and salinity tolerance in two species of bivalve mollusc: Limnoperna fortunei and Mytilopsis leucophaeta
TLDR
The differences in osmoregulatory behavior between the two species appear to be quantitative rather than qualitative, despite the phyletic distance between them.
The salivary gland and salivary enzymes of the giant waterbugs (Heteroptera; Belostomatidae).
TLDR
Differences in salivary enzyme composition between large and small species of giant waterbug (Lethocerus uhleri, Lethocerinae and Belostoma lutarium, Belostomatinae, respectively) are described and the first reported evidence of protease production in the accessory salivaries in the Heteroptera is reported.
There is no horohalinicum
TLDR
Re-examined the data used by Khlebovich (1968) and found that, in fact, while the ionic composition of diluted seawater changesslightly between 8 and 5‰, the changes in ionic ratios below 2‰ are much larger.
Hypoosmotic volume regulation in the sea anemone Metridium senile
TLDR
Mathematical analyses of changes in tissue hydration as a function of ambient salinity in M. senile, Haliplanella lineata, and Diadumene leucolena suggest that the effectiveness of volume regulation increases in individuals of these species acclimated to progressively more dilute media.

TLDR
The rapid, large increases in betaine reported here suggest that gene expression is not a factor in volume recovery by euryhaline bivalve tissues exposed to acute hyperosmotic stress.
Osmoregulation and epithelial permeability in two euryhaline bivalve molluscs: Mya arenaria and Geukensia demissa
TLDR
Mya , which has a higher permeability to water, is protected from severe desiccation stress by its deep burrowing habit and the relatively low water permeability of Geukensia is an adaptation to the high intertidal habitats preferred by this species.
Osmotic regulation and salinity tolerance in the freshwater snail Pomacea bridgesi and the freshwater clam Lampsilis teres
TLDR
The hypothesis that freshwater gastropods have a lower capacity for increasing the amino acid pool in response to increases in the ambient osmolality than do freshwater bivalves is consistent with the hypothesis that the animals are good volume regulators.

  • 1 July 1997
TLDR
There are large gaps in knowledge about volume regulation in cardiac muscle, and further investigation is clearly necessary to enhance the understanding of this aspect of cardiomyocyte physiology.
