Abstract
    Dopamine and dibutyryl cAMP induced a significant increase of Na-22(+) influx in salt-transporting posterior gills isolated from the Chinese crab Eriocheir sinensis acclimated to fresh water. When isolated gills were incubated and perfused in Cl--free saline (Cl- replaced by gluconate), dopamine or dibutyryl cAMP still produced a significant increase of Na-22(+) influx. After I-h perfusion, dopamine increased intracellular cAMP content and Na+/K+-ATPase activity as compared with control perfusions without dopamine.
