  • The aim of the present study was to investigate gastrointestinal uptake of recombinant growth hormone in rainbow trout. Recombinant human GH was used in this study to avoid cross reactivity with the endogenous trout GH molecule. Using both in vitro and in vivo approach, the results demonstrate that stomach is the main site of uptake for orally administered intact recombinant human growth hormone (hGH) in rainbow trout. The presence of hGH was verified by western blot analysis in the stomach… CONTINUE READING
