1. The absorption of NaCl and water was studied by intraluminal in vivo perfusion of the intestine of the yellow European eel (Anguilla anguilla) adapted to fresh water (FW), to sea water (SW), and to double strength SW (DSW).2. The net lumen to plasma NaCl transport from diluted SW perfusion fluids was independent of the NaCl concentration in the Na(+) concentration range tested. The NaCl absorption (expressed as mu-equiv/100 g.hr.) increased from FW (mean +/- S.E.): Na(+) 166 +/- 17, Cl… CONTINUE READING
