The role of the spleen in producing red blood cells during stress (measurements of haematocrit, haemoglobin, chloride, adrenaline conc., spleen mass) in Antarctic fish (Pagothenia borchgrevinki, Trematomus bernacchii)
Entry ID: K057_1991_1992_NZ_1

Abstract: The effects of stress (both hypoxia and exercise) on haematocrit in Antarctic fish was investigated with the aim to examine red cell release from the spleen under conditions of stress. The spleen of individuals of Pagothenia borchgrevinki was surgically isolated from the blood system to determine if it was acting as a supply of additional red cells during times of stress. Other fish had sham ... View entire text
