Salinity regulates claudin mRNA and protein expression in the teleost gill.


The teleost gill carries out NaCl uptake in freshwater (FW) and NaCl excretion in seawater (SW). This transformation with salinity requires close regulation of ion transporter capacity and epithelial permeability. This study investigates the regulation of tight-junctional claudins during salinity acclimation in fish. We identified claudin 3- and claudin 4… (More)
