Dynamics of Na(+),K(+),2Cl(-) cotransporter and Na(+),K(+)-ATPase expression in the branchial epithelium of brown trout (Salmo trutta) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).

Abstract

The dynamics of branchial Na(+),K(+),2Cl(-) cotransporter (NKCC) and Na(+),K(+)-ATPase (NKA) expression were investigated in brown trout and Atlantic salmon during salinity shifts and the parr-smolt transformation, respectively. In the brown trout, Western blotting revealed that NKCC and NKA abundance increased gradually and in parallel (30- and ten-fold… (More)
