  • Abstract The product encoded by the fibronectin type III domain-containing protein 5 (FNDC5) gene plays a role in energy metabolism. However, there is a lack of knowledge about the metabolic roles of FNDC5/irisin in non-mammalian species. This study compared serum irisin levels in Cyprinion macrostomus, an omnivorous fish, and Mastacembelus mastacembelus, a carnivorous fish. We measured serum irisin in 22 adult fish from each species from Murat Lake in Turkey, and found that irisin levels in… CONTINUE READING
