Summary The exchange of sodium and protons across the gills of fishes has long been associated with osmoregulatory and acid-base regulatory mechanisms in both freshwater and marine fishes. This thesis identifies several types of sodium/proton exchangers in the gills of fishes from different taxonomic classes. In addition, it was observed that the expression of sodium/proton exchanger messenger RNA was upregulated for 24 hours following induced metabolic acidosis in the Atlantic hagfish suggesting that sodium/proton exchangers have functioned in acid/base regulation from early in vertebrate history.
