The Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) is prone to osmoregulatory disturbances when faced with fluctuating ambient temperatures. To investigate the underlying causes of this phenomenon, freshwater (FW)- and seawater (SW)-acclimated tilapia were transferred to 15, 25, or 35°C for 2 weeks, and along with typically used indicators of osmoregulatory status [plasma osmolality and branchial and intestinal specific Na+, K+-ATPase (NKA) activity], we used tissue microarrays (TMA) and laser… CONTINUE READING
