Frogs are faced with various osmoregulatory problems, such as compensation of salt and water loss or metabolic acidification. Being exposed both to air and to pond water of low salinity in their natural habitat, the epithelium of the frog skin serves as one of the major organs for body fluid homeostasis. For years, the frog skin has been the guiding model for ion transport processes in animal cells energized by a Na(+)-motive force. Meanwhile, however, it was demonstrated that under natural… CONTINUE READING
