... in the gills. To further characterize the role of Pt Rh in ammonia metabolism and excretion, double-stranded RNA-mediated RNA interference of Pt Rh was employed. Knockdown of Pt Rh upregulated mRNA expression of ammonia excretion-related genes encoding aquaporin (AQP), K + channels and vesicle-associated...

..., across biological membranes. Zebrafish embryos were microinjected with a translation-blocking morpholino oligonucleotide targeted to AQP1a1. Knockdown of AQP1a1 significantly reduced rates of CO 2 and ammonia excretion, as well as water fluxes, in larvae at 4 days post fertilization (dpf). Because AQP1a1...
