While in mammals, the IGF/IGFBP system is known to be involved in adipose tissue growth, the presence of such a system in fish is as yet undetermined. The present work aimed at investigating the influence of regional localization of adipose tissues and cell types on the expression of this system. Using quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR), the presence of IGFs, IGFBPs, IGFBP-rPs, and IGFR I (insulin-like growth factors, IGF-binding proteins, IGFBP-related proteins, type I IGF receptor) was studied… CONTINUE READING
