Electrolyte distribution in the nucleated erythrocyte of the dogfish shark is found to resemble that found in low Na+ - high K+ mammalian erythrocytes. Total energy availability is found to exceed that required for cation transport suggesting that other energy-consuming processes are present. A substantial amount of energy required for cation transport is presumably derived from oxidative phosphorylation.
