Cold acclimation allows regulation of chloride secretion in a eurythermic teleost fish Fundulus heteroclitus.

Fundulus heteroclitus (mummichog or common killifish) is an ideal model for ion transport regulation in chloride cells of the opercular epithelium (OE) and the response to thermal challenge. Mummichogs were acclimated to warm (20 °C) and cold (5 °C) seawater and opercular epithelia dissected and mounted in isolated Ussing-style epithelia chambers. The α2… CONTINUE READING
