Expression analysis of glycerol synthesis-related liver transcripts in rainbow smelt (Osmerus mordax) exposed to a controlled decrease in temperature.

Abstract

Rainbow smelt (Osmerus mordax) accumulate high glycerol levels to avoid freezing at subzero temperatures. Glyceroneogenesis is activated by low temperature and occurs in liver via a branch in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. In this study, carbohydrate and liver transcript levels of 21 genes potentially associated with glycerol production were assessed… (More)
