Secretion of Cl- by the semicircular canal duct (SCCD) epithelium is regulated by protein kinase A and glucocorticoids with the ion likely to be transported across the apical membrane by cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR)
Atlantic salmon that have inherently good swimming performance also show better survival rates when challenged with a viral pathogen, indicating that the swimming trait is associated with disease resistance in fish.

BMC Physiology 2012, 12:8
BMC Physiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on cellular, tissue-level, organismal, functional, and developmental aspects of physiological processes.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.

Section Editor's profile
Monika Fleshner, PhD is a professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology, a member of the Center for Neuroscience, and the director of the Stress Physiology laboratory at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She is the current president of the International Society for Exercise Immunology (ISEI), past-president of the Psychoneuroimmunology Research Society (PNIRS), and a faculty associate for the Vice Chancellor for Research. Dr. Fleshner's research program is focused on understanding 1) the impact of acute and chronic stressor exposure (mental or physical) on behavior, neural, hormonal and immunological function; 2) how these systems interact to affect the whole organism; and 3) the mechanisms of increased stress resilience produced by exercise."BMC Physiology is a terrific platform to submit interdisciplinary and integrative work in Physiology. Our recently published review in BMC Physiology has been well received by the field [Speaker, KJ; Fleshner, M.
