Ultrastructural and immunohistochemical studies were conducted on the gill epithelium of the Mediterranean rainbow wrasse (Coris julis). We analysed the immunolocalisation of aquaporin 3 (AQP3) and aquaporin 1 (AQP1) in the gills using confocal microscopy. The ultrastructural features of the gill were investigated using transmission and scanning electron microscopy. The C. julis gill apparatus showed structural characteristics typical for Teleostei. Immunolocalization revealed differential… CONTINUE READING
