Salmonids, a group of tetraploid fish including salmon and trout, produce the vertebrate neuropeptide melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) in a group of hypothalamic magnocellular neurons in the nucleus lateralis tuberis (NLT). NLT neurons project both to the brain and to the neural lobe of the pituitary gland from where MCH is released into the circulation to play a central role in camouflage (+/- stress). We have cloned and sequenced the MCH1 and MCH2 genes from the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus… CONTINUE READING
