Abstract

Abstract 1. The effect of calcitonin in the elasmobranch, S. acanthias, on glomerular filtration rate and the tubular reabsorption of sodium, urea, potassium and calcium was examined. 2. In contrast to the mammal where calcitonin reduces reabsorption of mono and divalent ions, no influence on renal function was found in the shark.
