Studies by Agellon et al. (Mol. Reprod. Dev. 1, 11-17) showed the presence of two growth hormone (rtGH1 and rtGH2) mRNA species in pituitary glands of adult rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). In this study, we have detected rtGH1 and rtGH2 mRNAs in pituitary glands of rainbow trout from fry to 2 years of age. The level of rtGH1 mRNA is notably higher than… CONTINUE READING
