We adapted killifish to defined freshwater (FW: 1.0 mM Na, 1.0 mM Cl, + 0.1 mM Ca) and by fluorescence light microscopy and scanning and transmission electron microscopy found that the opercular epithelium retained mitochondria rich (MR) cells that were significantly larger but less numerous than in SW-acclimated tissues. Opercular epithelia mounted in vitro with FW bathing the mucosal surface take up Cl against a large negative inside transepithelial potential (Vt, grand mean –64.1 mV) and… CONTINUE READING
