... function as osmolytes in the haemolymph ( Witteveen et al., 1987 ). Previous studies on Orchesella and Tomocerus have shown that the maximum rate of water absorption occurred from distilled water ( Eisenbeis, 1982 ). The same pattern has been demonstrated for water uptake by the coxal vesicles...

... response of the sea bream ( Sparus aurata L.) to relevant changes of external salinity (12, 35 and 55 p.p.t.), focusing on the anterior intestine and in the less-often studied rectum. Intestinal water absorption, epithelial HCO 3 − secretion and gene expression of the main molecular mechanisms (SLC26a6...

... in the anterior intestine and probably acts to control luminal osmotic pressure while enhancing apical anion exchange; both processes with implications for water absorption. Cytosolic carbonic anhydrase (CAc) activity facilitates CO 2 hydration to fuel apical anion exchange while membrane-associated, luminal CA...

... – and water absorption is associated with basolateral, not apical, CFTR activity. The co-transporters discussed above, NC and NKCC2, facilitate the uphill movement of Cl – from the lumen across the apical membrane fueled by the electrochemical Na + gradient established by NKA. The past decade has...

.... Drinking rate decreased substantially at 12 h (32% of control value) and remained suppressed after 3 and 7 days in fresh water (34 and 43%). By contrast, there was a transient increase in the capacity for water absorption measured across isolated intestines in vitro (3.3- and 2.6-fold at 12 h and 3 days...
