Hormones and neuropeptides play a crucial role in the appetite control system of vertebrates, yet few studies have focused on their importance during early teleost development. In this study, we analysed the expression patterns of the appetite-controlling factors ghrelin, neuropeptide Y (NPY), peptide YY (PYY), pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC-C), and cocaine-amphetamine-related transcript (CART) by quantitative PCR. Transcript expression was investigated in response to feeding in developing Atlantic… CONTINUE READING
