The use of a perfused, whole-body preparation to measure the branchial and intestinal influx of 137-caesium in the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)


, : The use of a perfused, whole-body preparation to measure the branchial and intestinal influx of 137-caesium in the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Journal of Fish Biology 45(2): 247-256

The branchial and intestinal influx of caesium (Cs) in the rainbow trout were measured using a perfused whole-body preparation. The branchial influx of Cs was small, 0.31 micro moles/kg/h at an external concentration of 1 mM.

All teleost fish produce ammonia as a metabolic waste product. In embryos, ammonia excretion is limited by the chorion, and fish must detoxify ammonia by synthesizing urea via the ornithine urea cycle (OUC). Although urea is produced by embryos an...

Isolated perfused preparations permit the use of physiological routes of exposure for the study of mechanisms of toxicity under conditions where the architecture remains intact and the potential influences of other organs are eliminated. The perfu...
