Dietary fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid (ARA), affect cortisol and may influence the expression of genes involved in stress response in fish. The involvement of ARA on stress, lipid, and eicosanoid metabolism genes, in Senegalese sole, was tested. Post-larvae were fed Artemia presenting graded ARA levels (0.1, 0.4, 0.8, 1.7, and 2.3 %, dry matter(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe and compare the reproductive success and egg and larvae quality between wild and first-generation (F1) breeders of Argyrosomus regius. Wild broodstock were adapted to captivity, and good-quality spawns were obtained in 2009–2010, after GnRH treatment. In 2012, the F1 meagre (3 years old) spawned naturally at IPMA’s(More)
Menthol glucuronide was isolated from the urine of a healthy 70-kg female subject following ingestion of 400 mg of peppermint oil and 6 g of 99% [U-(13)C]glucose. Glucuronide (13)C-excess enrichment levels were 4-6% and thus provided high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) for confident assignment of (13)C-(13)C spin-coupled multiplet components within each(More)
