The dynamics of red blood cell release and uptake by the spleen and the control of red blood cell swelling from the effects of stress in two species of Antarctic fish, Pagothenia borchgrevinki and Trematomus bernacchii
Entry ID: K057_1996_1997_NZ_2

Summary
Abstract: In vitro experimentation determined that red cell swelling is a consequence of activation of a Na+/H+ antiporter located on the red cell membrane. The antiporter is controlled by a β-adrenoceptor sensitive to adrenaline located on the cell membrane, therefore these cells are sensitive to circulating stress hormones. The dynamics of red blood cell release and uptake by the spleen and the control of ... View entire text
