Olfactory sensitivity to changes in environmental Ca(2+) has been demonstrated in two teleost species; a salmonid (Oncorhynchus nerka) and a marine/estuarine perciform (Sparus aurata). To assess whether this phenomenon is restricted to species that normally experience large fluctuations in external ion concentrations (e.g. moving from sea water to fresh(More)
The caudal neurosecretory system of the flounder (Platichthys flesus) has been examined by immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization for the expression of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) and calcium-sensing receptors (CaSR). The N-terminus nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of flounder PTHrP were determined and used to prepare(More)
The present report describes the structure and expression of the calcitonin gene in Fugu rubripes. It is composed of 4 exons and 3 introns. Splicing of exons 1, 2 and 3 generates the calcitonin pre-proprotein, while splicing of exons 1, 2 and 4 generates calcitonin gene-related protein (CGRP). Exons 1 and 2 encoding the signal sequence and the N-terminal(More)
