... invaginations, both of which are associated with numerous mitochondria, characterizing an ion transporting epithelium. These changes in Na + /K + - and V-ATPase activities and in mRNA expression during salinity acclimation appear to underpin ion uptake and Cl – secretion by the palaemonid shrimp gill...

... increased as the external salinity decreased( Péqueux, 1995 ; Lucu and Towle, 2003 ). The results of NKA activities in the present study indicate that crabs responded differently to salinity acclimation. The NKA activity in some euryhaline crabs that could not survive in freshwater ( S. paramamosain, M...

... of the present work is the finding that chloride cells may actively participate in the salinity acclimation process by closing or opening apical crypts in response to simple osmotic stimuli and that pavement cells close over and reduce ion permeability. In this way, there is a potential for autoregulation...

... salinity acclimation Amino acids are important intracellular osmolytes in marine osmoconforming bivalve molluscs. Tissue amino acid levels decrease in animals exposed to hypo-osmotic sea water, as part of a volume regulatory mechanism. This occurs without observable increases in excretion of intact...
