Dynamic gene expression of GH/PRL-family hormone receptors in gill and kidney during freshwater-acclimation of Mozambique tilapia.

Abstract

In teleosts, prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GH) act at key osmoregulatory tissues to regulate hydromineral balance. This study was aimed at characterizing patterns of expression for genes encoding receptors for the GH/PRL-family of hormones in the gill and kidney of Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) during freshwater (FW)-acclimation… (More)
