Environmental and cortisol-mediated control of Ca2+ uptake in tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus)


Ca2+ is a vital element for many physiological processes in vertebrates, including teleosts, which live in aquatic environments and acquire Ca2+ from their surroundings. Ionocytes within the adult gills or larval skin are critical sites for transcellular Ca2+ uptake in teleosts. The ionocytes of zebrafish were found to contain transcellular Ca2… (More)
