The euryhaline pupfish, Cyprinodon variegatus variegatus (Cvv), can successfully osmoregulate in ≥2mM Na+ and a freshwater population (Cyprinodon variegatus hubbsi; Cvh) osmoregulates at ≥0.1mM Na+. We previously demonstrated that Cvv relies on an apical NKCC and NHE in the gill for Na+ uptake in high (7mM) and intermediate (2mM) Na+ concentrations, while Cvh relies only on NHE for Na+ uptake.
