In order to characterize the individual diurnal plasma profiles of triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), blood samples from 41 fish were taken every hour during a 24-hr period, through a catheter inserted into the dorsal aorta. The possible influences of day-night alternation, sex, and diet (feed intake, time of meals) on thyroid hormone (TH) profiles were analyzed. The existence of relations between diurnal plasma profiles of T3, T4, T3/T4 ratio, and… CONTINUE READING
