Susceptibility to abnormal (kinetotic) swimming fish correlates with inner ear carbonic anhydrase-reactivity.

Larval cichlid fish (Oreochromis mossambicus) were kept at hypergravity (hg; centrifuge) for 6 h. Following the transfer to 1 g (i.e. stopping the centrifuge), animals were separated into normally and abnormally (kinetotic) swimming individuals (the latter were swimming kinetotically, i.e. performing spinning movements). Subsequently, carbonic anhydrase… CONTINUE READING
