Interrelationship between chloride cell proliferation and gas transfer in the rainbow trout.

Shawn. Bindon
This thesis examines the morphological and physiological changes that occur in the gills of the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, as a result of chloride cell proliferation. In the first component of this thesis (Chapter 2), the effects of chloride cell hyperplasia and hypertrophy on ion transport capability and the morphological diffusing capacity of the gill were evaluated. These experiments were performed to test the hypothesis that chloride cell proliferation benefits ionic regulation at the expense...
