Transcriptomic Analysis of Trout Gill Ionocytes in Fresh Water and Sea Water Using Laser Capture Microdissection Combined with Microarray Analysis
Mean plasma sodium (A), chloride (B), and calcium (C) from time 0 to 21 days post sea water transfer. Open and filled circles represent respectively freshwater and seawater transferred trout. Values represent means ± s.e.m. of six fishes. Differences between freshwater and seawater at each time point were assessed with non-parametric Mann-Whitney U-test after non-parametric analysis of variance (Kruskal-Wallis test). * and **, significantly different from the corresponding values in freshwater at P<0.05 and P<0.01.
