Factors potentially regulating hepatic growth hormone (GH) receptors in coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) have been investigated. From December to June of the first year, relative changes in hepatic 125I-sGH binding and 35SO4 incorporation by ceratobranchial cartilage were similar. Stunted salmon, which in seawater have elevated plasma GH yet fail to grow, showed lower hepatic 125I-sGH binding than did normally growing seawater salmon. However, MgCl2 treatment of stunts' membranes to reveal… CONTINUE READING
