Previously we characterized three DNAs from the endocrine pancreas (Brockmann body) of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) that encode for distinct preprosomatostatin (PPSS) molecules: one containing somatostatin-14 and its C-terminus (PPSS I) and two containing [Tyr7, Gly10]-somatostatin-14 at their C-termini (PPSS II′ and PPSS II″). In the present study, the regulation of PPSS expression was studied in rainbow trout placed on varying nutritional regimes (fed continuously, fasted, fasted then… CONTINUE READING
