A recent examination of the relationship between O2 uptake (M(dot)O2) and diffusive sodium loss (JNaout) in a freshwater fish showed that Na+ losses after exhaustive exercise exceeded those expected on the basis of M(dot)O2, probably due to distortion of the paracellular tight junctions (the primary site of diffusive ion loss) and/or glomerular-type filtration caused by increased lamellar pressure. In the present study, an examination of this relationship in nine species of fish from diverse… CONTINUE READING
