This study describes changes in cathepsin L activity during early development in Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis) and determines to which extend a precocious proteolysis of the yolk reserves by activated cathepsin L could be involved in the seasonal decline of egg and larval quality. During embryogenesis and early larval stages, samples were collected for determination of fertilization and hatching rates, assays of cathepsin L activity, and evaluation of larval resistance to stress (osmotic… CONTINUE READING
