Vertebrate osmoregulation: a student laboratory exercise using teleost fish. Adv Physiol Educ 31: 352–357, 2007; doi:10.1152/advan.00040.2007.—Here, we describe a laboratory experiment as part of an upper-level vertebrate physiology course for biology majors to investigate the physiological response of vertebrates to osmoregulatory challenges. The experiment involves measuring plasma osmolality and Na-K-ATPase activity in gill tissue of teleost fish acclimated to water of differing salinity. We describe results obtained using the widely available goldfish ( Caras- sius auratus ) and a common baitfish, the Gulf killifish ( Fundulus grandis ). The procedures described are generally applicable to other fish species, and they provide an alternative to the experimental use of humans or other mammalian species to investigate osmoregulation...
