The control of blood flow and the effects of drugs on the contractile forces exerted by blood vessels in the gills of Pagothenia borchgrevinki
Entry ID: K057_1995_1996_NZ_1

Abstract: The control of blood flow through the gill of a notothenioid fish, Pagothenia borchgrevinki, was examined by isolating a gill arch and perfusing it with saline. The effects of drugs on the afferent and efferent branchial arteries, the vessels supplying blood to the gills, was also investigated. A single gill arch was dissected from a P. borchgrevinki. Afferent (into the gill) and efferent (out of ... View entire text
