Low doses of arginine-vasotocin (AVT), isotocin and oxytocin (1 pg-1 ng/kg body weight) were antidiuretic in eels adapted to fresh water but not in those adapted to sea-water. High doses (more than 10 ng/kg) were always diuretic. No effects on tubular water reabsorption were observed and the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was proportional to the maximum reabsorptive rate for glucose (Tm(glucose)) in eels adapted to sea-water. Increases in urinary flow appeared therefore to result from… CONTINUE READING
