...Loïc Kéver; Orphal Colleye; Anthony Herrel; Pascal Romans; Eric Parmentier Numerous studies have highlighted the diversity of fish inner ear morphology. However, the function of the shape, size and orientation of the different structures remains poorly understood. The saccule (otolithic endorgan...

...Jen-Chieh Shiao; Su-Mei Wu; Yi-Ping Hwang; Done-Ping Wu; Pung-Pung Hwang SUMMARY Thyroid-mediated otolith growth in tilapia was evaluated by the ontogenic triiodothyronine (T 3 ) profile revealed by radioimmunoassay during the first month after hatching. Thyroid hormone receptor genes( TR α and TR...

.... Two pigmented structures in the brain of the ascidian larva, the ocellus and the otolith, have been shown to function as the photoreceptive and gravity sensitive organs, respectively. Here, we show that pigmentation is essential for proper phototactic and geotactic behavior in larvae of the ascidian...

... is an otolith, presumably used for gravity detection,and the posterior pigment cell is an ocellus, used for photoreception. However, there is no direct experimental evidence for this assignment of function. Upward swimming behaviour occurring during the initial period of larval life was examined before...

... and completely inhibited in Na + -free Ringer or in the presence of 1 mmol l −1 amiloride. A cellular model stressing the importance of proton exchange through the saccular epithelium is proposed to explain the regulation of endolymph pH, a crucial factor for the deposition of otolith calcium. * e...
