Production of recombinant leptin and its effects on food intake in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
Leptin is a key factor for the regulation of food intake and energy homeostasis in mammals, but information regarding its role in teleosts is still limited. There are large differences betweenExpand

Fuel and metabolic scaling during the early life stages of Atlantic cod Gadus morhua
The simultaneous effect of temperature (5, 7, 10 and 13°C) and light on the rates of oxy- gen consumption and ammonia excretion of larval and early juvenile Atlantic cod Gadus morhua was examined.Expand

Leptin and leptin receptor genes in Atlantic salmon: Cloning, phylogeny, tissue distribution and expression correlated to long-term feeding status.
The present study reports the complete coding sequences for two paralogues for leptin (sLepA1 and sLepA2) and leptin receptor (sLepR) in Atlantic salmon. The deduced 171-amino acid (aa) sequence ofExpand

Characterization, tissue distribution, and regulation of agouti-related protein (AgRP), cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) and neuropeptide Y (NPY) in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
Key peptide hormones involved in the control of appetite in vertebrates were identified, their genes characterized and their regulation studied in Atlantic salmon: two agouti-related proteins (AgRP),Expand

Ghrelin, cholecystokinin, and peptide YY in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar): molecular cloning and tissue expression.
Gastrointestinal (GI) peptide hormones, ghrelin (GHRL), cholecystokinin (CCK), and peptide YY (PYY) genes were identified in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar. Full-length cDNAs encoding two isoforms ofExpand

Feeding behaviour and digestive physiology in larval fish: current knowledge, and gaps and bottlenecks in research
Food uptake follows rules defined by feeding behaviour that determines the kind and quantity of food ingested by fish larvae as well as how live prey and food particles are detected, captured andExpand

Fish larval nutrition: a review of recent advances in the roles of amino acids
Marine pelagic fish eggs from various latitudes contain up to 50% of the total amino acid pool as free amino acids (FAAs). The FAA pool is established during final oocyte maturation and seems toExpand

In vivo studies of digestion and nutrient assimilation in marine fish larvae
Abstract This paper describes a method for quantifying the functionality of the digestive system in fish larvae. The system described can provide data for the gut absorption, oxidation and retentionExpand

Respiration, nitrogen and energy metabolism of developing yolk-sac larvae of Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus L.)
Abstract The present investigation quantifies the partitioning of yolk enthalpy (C) into production of biomass (P), dissipation due to metabolism (R) and losses associated with excretion ofExpand

Molecular cloning and genomic characterization of novel leptin-like genes in salmonids provide new insight into the evolution of the Leptin gene family.
In the current study we describe the identification of novel leptin B homologous gene/s in the four salmonid species Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), brown troutExpand
