Opercular membranes from freshwater tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) were maintained in vitro for 4 days and exposed to several concentrations of cortisol (0, 0.01, 0.1, 1, and 10 micrograms/ml). Chloride cell size, number, and Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase content were examined using a fluorescent mitochondrial dye (dimethylaminostyrylethylpyridiniumiodine), a fluorescent analogue of ouabain (anthroylouabain) that binds specifically to Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase, and a cytological stain specific for plasma and… Expand
