The effect of cortisol on Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase expression in the gill chloride cells of tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus was studied by immunocytochemistry at the light and electron microscope levels. One of three doses of cortisol (low, 125 mg kg(-1 )food; middle, 375 mg kg(-1 )food; high, 750 mg kg(-1) food) was administered via the food (at a ration of 1.5 % of body mass) and the fish were sampled after 5 days. Plasma osmolality and Na(+) levels were elevated in the middle- and high-dose groups… CONTINUE READING
