.... Branchial Na + ,K + -ATPase activity was much higher in SW gills, but could not be activated by NH 4 + . Overall, the more effective response of SW trout was explained by differences in physical chemistry between SW and FW, which greatly reduced the plasma NH 3 tension gradient for NH 3 entry, as well...

... for a successful terrestrial invasion. Crabs can actively uptake or excrete ions upon salinity change, and the gills play a major role among the osmoregulatory organs. Several enzymes are involved in the osmoregulatory process, including Na + ,K + -ATPase and V-type H + -ATPase (V-H + -ATPase). Na + ,K + -ATPase...

... in the brain of five mammalian and eight avian species ranging in size from 30 g mice to 280 kg cattle and 13 g zebra finches to 35 kg emus, respectively. Sodium pump(Na + ,K + -ATPase) activity was higher in the smaller species and showed a significant allometric decline with body mass in both the mammals...

... of the lumen of the anterior and middle midgut regions. Introduction Larval Lepidoptera are voracious, rapidly growing phytophages. It is not surprising, therefore, to find that the midgut dominates the bodyplan of such insects (Dow, 1986). The midgut is endowed with a phenomenally active K+- ATPase...
