Biology 2672a: Comparative Animal Physiology Osmoregulation in fishes Freshwater fish Water Inside: Outside: 300 mOsm

Outside: 300 mOsm 1000 mOsm Low Na+ & Cl- High Na+ & Cl- Water

Terrestrial fish Inside: Outside: Wet Dry High Na+ & Cl-

No Na+ & Cl- Salts Water Osmoregulation Maintenance of water and salt balance in the body Why freshwater fishes dont

explode, saltwater fishes dont dry up and people dont desiccate Osmolarity/Osmolality The amount of stuff in a solution 1 Mole of solutes = 1 Osmole Cumulative: 0.2 M of 5 things = 1 Osmole

Osmolality per kg of solvent Osmolarity per litre of solvent Osmotic pressure Solutes exert pressure that moves water from place to place Can be a source of hydrostatic pressure Osmosis

Movement of water across a semi-permeable membrane Net movement of water driven by osmotic pressure Osmosis and hydrostatic pressure Osmotic pressure has caused bulging hydrostatic pressure

Urea is used to make up the osmotic gap between internal and external concentration Requires high protein diet for manufacturing Urea TMAO acts as a counteracting solute to preserve protein function in high concentrations of urea.
