Abstract This review assembles recent information on seawater-type chloride cells of marine teleost fish and evaluates the secretion of Na+, Cl-, K+, H+ and NH4+ and the absorption of Ca2+. The evidence for the distribution (apical vs basolateral) and the abundance of the various ion pumps, cotransporters, channels and exchangers is assessed and an inclusive model is constructed. Relationships among the transport systems are presented to suggest that many, if not all, of these systems may be operating simultaneously in individual, multifunctional chloride cells.
