... of the kidney during immersion. When restrained on land, P. sinensis occasionally submerged their head into water (20–100 min), during which urea excretion and oxygen extraction occurred simultaneously. These results indicate for the first time that buccopharyngeal villiform processes (BVP) and rhythmic...

... glutamine, and the toadfish urea transporter, tUT, which is involved in urea excretion across the gill of the gulf toadfish. GS (of which there are two isoforms, LGS and GGS) and tUT mRNA expression and activity were measured in toadfish exposed to treatments that would induce variable stress responses...

... in a layer of dried mucus in open air in the laboratory. Despite decreases in rates of ammonia and urea excretion, the ammonia content in the muscle, liver, brain and gut of P. dolloi remained unchanged after 6 days of aestivation compared with the control fasted for 6 days. For specimens aestivated for 40...

...] reversibly inhibited urea excretion from the embryos to the external water. Unidirectional urea influx was inhibited by acetamide and thiourea, with IC 50 values of 0.04 and 0.05 mmol l −1 , respectively. Influx of urea from the external water to the embryo tended to saturate at elevated external urea...

... to neutral water (pH7, total CO 2 <1mmol l −1 ) results in a complete inhibition of urea excretion. In the present study, we further characterized the physiological effects of transferring O. a. grahami from alkaline to neutral water. Exposure to neutral water resulted in a significant decrease in blood...
