Evaluation of potential reference genes in real-time RT-PCR studies of Atlantic salmon
BackgroundSalmonid fishes are among the most widely studied model fish species but reports on systematic evaluation of reference genes in qRT-PCR studies is lacking.ResultsThe stability of sixExpand

Differential expression of gill Na+,K+-ATPaseα - and β-subunits, Na+,K+,2Cl- cotransporter and CFTR anion channel in juvenile anadromous and landlocked Atlantic salmon Salmo salar
SUMMARY This study examines changes in gill Na+,K+-ATPase (NKA) α- and β-subunit isoforms, Na+,K+,2Cl- cotransporter (NKCC) and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR I and II) inExpand

Environmental enrichment promotes neural plasticity and cognitive ability in fish
Different kinds of experience during early life can play a significant role in the development of an animal's behavioural phenotype. In natural contexts, this influences behaviours from anti-predatorExpand

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

Branchial expression patterns of claudin isoforms in Atlantic salmon during seawater acclimation and smoltification.
In euryhaline teleosts, permeability changes in gill epithelia are essential during acclimation to changed salinity. This study examined expression patterns of branchial tight junction proteinsExpand

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

Exposure to moderate acid water and aluminum reduces Atlantic salmon post-smolt survival
Acidification is acknowledged as the cause for extinction or catch reductions in numerous Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) populations in Norway. In freshwater, labile (cationic/inorganic) forms ofExpand

The role of growth hormone in growth, lipid homeostasis, energy utilization and partitioning in rainbow trout: interactions with leptin, ghrelin and insulin-like growth factor I.
The growth-promoting effects of in vivo growth hormone (GH) treatment were studied in relation to size and lipid content of energy stores including liver, mesentery, white muscle and belly flap inExpand

Stress in Atlantic salmon: response to unpredictable chronic stress.
Combinations of stressors occur regularly throughout an animal's life, especially in agriculture and aquaculture settings. If an animal fails to acclimate to these stressors, stress becomes chronic,Expand
