... of environmental ammonia, it was detoxified into urea through the OUC. In comparison, the South American freshwater stingray Potamotrygon motoro , which has lost the capability to synthesize urea de novo , was unable to detoxify ammonia to urea during ammonia loading. No increase in glutamine was observed...

We found that gills from freshwater stingrays had the highest relative abundance of V-H + -ATPase and greatest number of V-H + -ATPase-rich cells, using immunoblotting...
