Sex biased expression of ghrelin and GHSR associated with sexual size dimorphism in yellow catfish.

Abstract

Sexual size dimorphism has been observed in many cultivable fish species including yellow catfish, in which male fish grow much faster than female fish. Ghrelin is a potent stimulator of pituitary growth hormone (GH) release and known to potentially promote food intake and body weight gain. In order to investigate the molecular mechanism of sexual size… (More)
