Effects of corticosteroids and protein synthesis inhibitors on activities of oxidative enzymes in a bony fish, Anabas testudineus (Bloch).

The activities of oxidative enzymes of hepatic mitochondria of Anabas testudineus increased following exogenous administration of hydrocortisone and corticosterone. The inhibitors of protein synthesis prevented the hormone-mediated increase of hepatic enzymes, suggesting that corticosteroids regulate the oxidative metabolism of this teleostean species… CONTINUE READING
