|Title:||Studies on the effect of air exposure on gill Na+/K+-ATPase of the marble goby, Oxyeleotris marmorata, a facultative air-breathing fish||Authors:||Fenwick, J.C.
|Issue Date:||Jul-1988||Citation:||Fenwick, J.C., Lam, T.J. (1988-07). Studies on the effect of air exposure on gill Na+/K+-ATPase of the marble goby, Oxyeleotris marmorata, a facultative air-breathing fish. Fish Physiology and Biochemistry 5 (3) : 121-130. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1007/BF01875700||Abstract:||Gill and liver microsomal Na+/K+-adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) activities, body weight, and several blood parameters were measured in marble gobies held in freshwater, in air on wet filter paper for 7 days and three days after return to freshwater following 7 days in air. During the 7 days in air, body weight, and blood Na+ and K+ concentrations remained unchanged. During the same period, however, mean specific activity of the gill ATPase fell 79% while liver ATPase specific activity was unchanged. When these fish were returned to water the specific activity of the gill ATPase returned to values seen in freshwater gobies within 3 days. Several changes were also noted in the characteristics of the ATPase in the fish held in air. © 1988 Kugler Publication.||Source Title:||Fish Physiology and Biochemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/106901||ISSN:||09201742||DOI:||10.1007/BF01875700|
