A survey of 7,934. recent federal and state court cases in which psychologists presented Rorschach testimony revealed only 6 in which the appropriateness of the Rorschach was challenged and just one in which the testimony was not admitted into evidence. There is accordingly good reason to believe that, despite occasionally voiced concerns to the contrary,(More)
Growth traits represent a main goal in aquaculture breeding programs and may be related to adaptive variation in wild fisheries. Integrating quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping and next generation sequencing can greatly help to identify variation in candidate genes, which can result in marker-assisted selection and better genetic structure information.(More)
In order to improve the understanding of pejerrey Odontesthes bonariensis, growth hormone (Gh)-insulin-like growth factor-1(Igf1) axis, O. bonariensis growth hormone receptor type 1 (ghr1) and type 2 (ghr2) mRNA sequences were obtained. Both transcripts were ubiquitously expressed except in kidney, encephalon and anterior intestine. Alternative transcripts(More)
Growth hormone is an essential polypeptide required for normal growth and development of vertebrates. The pejerrey fish, Odontesthes bonariensis, is a South American atherinid freshwater fish considered as a promising species for aquaculture. Although growth hormone has been characterized in a number of fish, there are no published data on the structure of(More)
The liver production of the insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is a key factor in the endocrine control of body growth by a growth hormone. As pejerrey Odontesthes bonariensis has been reported as a fish with low growth rates in captivity, basic research on this respect is needed in order to understand it. In this context, the pejerrey IGF-I cDNA was(More)
