Research Article: Hypernatremia in Dice Snakes (Natrix tessellata) from a Coastal Population: Implications for Osmoregulation in Marine Snake Prototypes

Date Published: March 21, 2014 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): François Brischoux, Yurii V. Kornilev, Ulrich Joger. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0092617 Abstract The widespread relationship between salt excreting structures (e.g., salt glands) and marine life strongly suggests that the ability to regulate salt balance has been crucial during the transition to marine life in tetrapods. Elevated natremia … Continue reading

Research Article: A2 Noradrenergic Lesions Prevent Renal Sympathoinhibition Induced by Hypernatremia in Rats

Date Published: May 21, 2012 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Gustavo Rodrigues Pedrino, André Henrique Freiria-Oliveira, Débora Simões Almeida Colombari, Daniel Alves Rosa, Sergio Luiz Cravo, Nick Ashton. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0037587 Abstract Renal vasodilation and sympathoinhibition are recognized responses induced by hypernatremia, but the central neural pathways underlying such responses are not yet entirely understood. Several findings … Continue reading
