Cholecystokinin and peptide Y in yellowtail (Seriola quinqueradiata): molecular cloning, real-time quantitative RT-PCR, and response to feeding and fasting.

Abstract

In fish, the peptide hormones cholecystokinin (CCK) and peptide Y (PY) may be involved in pancreatic exocrine secretion, as found with mammalian CCK and peptide YY (PYY); CCK stimulates, whereas PYY inhibits, pancreatic exocrine secretion in mammals. However, there is very little information on these hormones in fish; in particular, the function of PY is… (More)
