Permeability properties of the goldfish gill epithelium were examined in vivo and in vitro following exposure to ion-poor water (IPW) conditions. In gill tissue of IPW-acclimated goldfish, transcript abundance of tight junction (TJ) proteins occludin, claudin-b, -d, -e, -h, -7, and -8d increased, whereas ZO-1 and claudin 12 mRNA decreased and claudin-c was unaltered. In association with these changes, TJ depth increased among gill pavement cells (PVCs) and gill PVCs and mitochondria-rich cells…

Claudin-8d is a cortisol-responsive barrier protein in the gill epithelium of trout.

Data support the idea that Cldn-8d is a barrier protein of the gill epithelium TJ that contributes significantly to corticosteroid-mediated alterations in gill encapsulation permeability.

Data from this study support the view that tTJs and the TJ protein TRIC 1) play a role in maintaining gill epithelium integrity and 2) contribute to the regulation of gill endothelial permeability.

This study provides direct evidence that the gill epithelium contains salinity-responsive tight junction proteins that are abundant primarily in ionocytes, and these same proteins also appear to play a role in the osmoregulatory physiology of the epidermis.

Claudins of sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) - organ-specific expression and transcriptional responses to water of varying ion content.

The idea that claudin (Cldn) TJ proteins play an important role in the osmoregulatory physiology of pre- and post-metamorphic sea lamprey is supported and that Cldn participation can occur across organs, in an organ-specific manner as well as differ spatially within organs that contribute to the regulation of salt and water balance in these fishes.

Claudins in a primary cultured puffer fish (Tetraodon nigroviridis) gill epithelium.

A primary cultured gill epithelium from the model organism Tetraodon nigroviridis has been developed for the study of claudin tight junction (TJ) proteins and their potential role in the regulation of paracellular permeability across the gills of fishes.
