...S. L. Steele; P. H. Yancey; P. A. Wright SUMMARY Marine elasmobranchs retain relatively high levels of urea to counterbalance the osmotic strength of seawater. Oviparous species, such as the little skate Raja erinacea , release encapsulated embryos that hatch after about 9 months on the seafloor...

... skate Raja erinacea Urea retention is the cornerstone of the marine elasmobranchs'osmoregulation strategy. A relatively high concentration of urea and trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) in the extracellular fluid allows these fishes to be slightly hyperosmotic to the marine environment( Smith, 1936...

... transporter in the kidney of the dogfish. We examined mechanisms of urea transport in the kidney of the little skate Raja erinacea using an isolated brush-border membrane vesicle preparation. Urea uptake by brush-border membrane vesicles is by a phloretin-sensitive, non-saturable uniporter in the dorsal...
