Interrenal secretion of corticosteroids and plasma cortisol and cortisone concentrations after acute stress and during seawater acclimation in juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch).

We determined the major corticosteroids secreted by interrenal tissue and those present in plasma of juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch). Incubation medium of interrenal tissue, unstimulated or stimulated with exogenous ACTH in vitro, and plasma of resting or acutely stressed salmon were extracted and qualitatively analyzed for steroid composition… CONTINUE READING
