A STUDY OF THE UNIDIRECTIONAL FLUXES OF Na AND Cl ACROSS THE GILLS OF THE

Abstract

The gills of the dogfish Scyliorhmus canicula are more permeable to Cl than to Na. In sea water, influx of Na and Cl exceeded the efflux of these ions. Under these conditions the fish were slightly electronegative, by about 2 mV, to the external solution. The net accumulation of Cl could be accounted for by diffusion along the observed electrochemical… (More)
