The objectives of this study were to characterize the pattern of pulsatile urea excretion in the gulf toadfish in the wake of exogenous cortisol loading and to determine the receptors involved in the regulation of this mechanism. Toadfish were fitted with indwelling arterial catheters and were infused with isosmotic NaCl for 48 h after which fish were treated with cortisol alone, cortisol+peanut oil, cortisol+RU486 (a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist) or cortisol+spironolactone (a… CONTINUE READING
