The ferritin heavy (H) and middle (M) subunit cDNAs were isolated from the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) liver. Full-length clones encoding the ferritin M subunit of 176 residues were obtained by screening of a liver cDNA library. The evolutionary conserved iron-responsive element (IRE) was identified in the upstream untranslated region. Ferritin H cDNA was(More)
Dose-duration relationships for vecuronium were determined and the duration of action produced by vecuronium 0.3 mg kg-1 shown to equal that of pancuronium 0.1 mg kg-1. Using these doses, the neuromuscular blocking properties and cardiovascular effects of the two drugs were compared. With large dose administration of vecuronium (0.3 mg kg-1), both the onset(More)
If osmotic stress and reduced seawater tolerance are predisposing factors for infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) outbreaks in farmed Atlantic salmon, increased survival by enhancing access to energy would be expected. The aim of the present study was, therefore, to increase energy access in 1-year old Atlantic salmon after sea transfer by increasing the(More)
We have previously documented increased survival by feeding tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) during a natural outbreak of infectious pancreatic necrosis in post-smolt S1 Atlantic salmon. The aim of the present study was to test the effects of dietary TTA in S0 smolt at a location where fish often experience natural outbreaks of heart and skeletal muscle(More)
Heart and skeletal muscle inflammation (HSMI) is a disease causing considerable mortality in farmed Atlantic salmon. We have previously reported that pre-feeding of tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) reduces the mortality during a natural outbreak of HSMI. In the present paper we show that in the cardiac ventricle, during HSMI infection, pre-feeding TTA(More)
Two growth experiments and one digestibility experiment were conducted to study the effect of trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) and betaine in swine diets. In Exp. 1, 36 limit-fed pigs averaging 19.1 kg in initial weight were used to study the effect of adding TMAO at 10 g/kg of feed or betaine at an equivalent level of methyl groups (10.5 g/kg feed) to a(More)
This study provoked sex-specific differences in fat metabolism in Atlantic salmon Salmo salar, by dietary administration of tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) during their first spring and winter in the sea. The effects of TTA were evaluated in June of the first spring and May of the second spring in the sea, by analysing white muscle-fat content. Muscle fat(More)
Reports of midazolam interaction with vecuronium in animals prompted us to compare midazolam (0.25 mg kg-1) with thiopentone (5 mg kg-1) for possible interactions with vecuronium in patients, when used for induction of anaesthesia. After the administration of either of the two induction agents, the patients received vecuronium 0.1 mg kg-1. The onset time,(More)
Characterization of Atlantic salmon serum transferrin cDNA representing a near full-length transferrin mRNA revealed a 2,070-bp open reading frame encoding a protein of 690 amino acids. The predicted protein contains an 18 amino acids' long signal sequence and shows 49% amino acid positional identity with Xenopus laevis transferrin and human serum(More)
