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),(More)
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 trout(More)
The present study was conducted to establish a homologous radioimmunoassay (RIA) for quantifying plasma leptin (Lep) levels in salmonid species, and to study Lep levels in relation to nutritional(More)
The first studies that identified leptin and its receptor (LepR) in mammals were based on mutant animals that displayed dramatic changes in body-weight and regulation of energy homeostasis.(More)
