Unidirectional fluxes of Na+ obtained in perfused preparation and mucosal enzyme equipment (alkaline phosphatase, ouabain-sensitive Na+, K+-ATPase) have been determined in the middle and posterior intestine of freshwater (FW) and sea-water (SW) adapted trout. In FW, influxes and outfluxes were higher in the middle than in the posterior intestine, although(More)
1. A primary mechanosensory neurone, the anterior gastric receptor (AGR) associated with gastric mill muscle in the lobster foregut was examined in vitro with extra- and intra-cellular recording techniques to understand processes of dendritic integration and dendro-axonal communication. 2. AGR has a 'T'-shaped geometry; its two long (> 3 mm) primary(More)
1. A long-lasting restructuring of the pyloric neural network of the lobster stomatogastric nervous system (STS) by a multisynaptic sensory afferent is described. This restructuring can be obtained either by mechanical stimulation of the pyloric region of the stomach or by brief high-frequency electrical stimulation of a nerve that innervates this region,(More)
Regulatory volume decrease (RVD) following hyposmotic stimulation was studied in isolated turbot, Scophthalmus maximus, hepatocytes. Exposed to a reduced osmolality (from 320 to 240 mosm kg−1), cells first swelled and then exhibited a RVD. Volume regulation was significantly inhibited in presence of NPPB, 9-AC, acetazolamide, DIDS and barium. Taken(More)
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ATP is released from many cell types exposed to hypo-osmotic shock and is involved in RVD (regulatory volume decrease). Purinergic signalling events have been extensively investigated in mammals, but not in marine teleosteans. RESULTS The effect of hypo-osmotic shock on ATP release was examined in isolated hepatocytes from turbot(More)
The effect of hyposmotic shock on exocytosis was examined in isolated hepatocytes of turbot, a marine flatfish, using the molecular probe FM1-43. Sudden exposure to a reduced osmolality caused an increase in cell exocytic activity related to the osmotic gradient between intra- and extracellular fluids. Cytoskeletal microtubules could contribute to this(More)
The fine structure of the skin and its importance in chloride outfluxes were investigated in a sea-water teleost, the shanny (Blennius pholis L.). The epidermis is composed of three cells types: epithelial cells, mucous cells and chloride cells. These chloride cells typically contain a great number of mitochondria and an extensive agranular reticulum(More)
The structural modifications in the middle intestine of the trout, Salmo gairdneri, induced by transfer to seawater have been studied. During the first two days in seawater, significant distensions of the intercellular spaces are observed between the apical tight junctions and the basement membrane. These dilations are more frequent in the apical part of(More)
Rainbow trout were fed either a commercial diet or semi-purified diets containing 8% by weight of either cod liver oil, grape seed oil or hydrogenated coconut oil. Important changes in the fatty acid composition of erythrocyte membrane phospholipids were induced by these dietary fats. No changes were seen in the cholesterol/phospholipid ratio and in the(More)
We have developed a new double labeling method for electron microscopy to characterize selectively two physiologically identified neurons on the same preparation. The stomatogastric nervous system of crustaceans was used to test the distinguishing staining characteristics of the two labels. Neurons were labeled on one side with horseradish peroxidase (HRP)(More)
