Ovine growth hormone (oGH) was administered to rainbow trout via an intraperitoneal cholesterol implant. After 21 days, plasma oGH levels were recorded as control group, less than 2 ng ml-1, i.e., not detectable, and oGH group, 19.2 +/- 2.8 ng ml-1. oGH-treated fish exhibited significantly increased whole-body growth rates, whole-body protein accretion rates, stimulated tissue protein synthesis, and tissue protein accretion rates. A dramatic decrease in white muscle protein concentration was… CONTINUE READING
