Throughout the life cycle of the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), the heart exhibits periods of enhanced growth. Two such instances are cardiac enlargement associated with sexual maturity in males and heart growth at seasonally low environmental temperatures. Heart growth includes a parallel increase in the number of mitochondria. These natural models of heart growth have been exploited to study protein synthesis directed by the mitochondrial genome. Methods were developed to assess protein… CONTINUE READING
