ATPase / Smoltification

Na+/K+ ATPase Enzyme Activity

This assay measures the Na+/K+ ATPase enzyme activity in the gills of fish. This enzyme plays a key role in the osmoregulation of sodium and potassium ions in fish and the enzyme activity level is a key indicator of smoltification, the physiological and morphological changes juvenile salmon undergo in preparation for the move to a salt water environment.
