The osmoregulatory actions of ovine prolactin (oPRL), ovine growth hormone (oGH), and cortisol were tested in the euryhaline gilthead seabream Sparus aurata. Acclimated to sea water (SW, 40 ppt salinity, 1000 mOsm/kg H(2)O) or brackish water (BW, 5 ppt, salinity, 130 mOsm/kg H(2)O), injected every other day for one week (number of injections, 4) with saline (0.9% NaCl), oPRL (4 microg/g body weight), oGH (4 microg/g body weight) or cortisol (5 microg/g body weight), and transferred from SW to… CONTINUE READING
