Abstract

The brown trout (Salmo trutta L.) is widely distributed all around Europe but its natural diversity is threatened by massive stocking with Atlantic domestic strains. Describing the remaining natural genetic diversity and the proportion of domestic hatchery strains in rivers is a prerequisite for...

Abstract

Considerable effort has been devoted to understanding the negative effects of reduced PO2 on cardiac function. Much less is known about the impacts of elevated PO2 (hyperoxia) on cardiac performance and energetics, especially in fishes. The fish heart is of particular interest because cardiac...

Abstract

Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) is among the most iconic and economically important fish species and was the first member of Salmonidae to have a high-quality reference genome assembly published. Advances in genomics have become increasingly central to the genetic improvement of farmed Atlantic...

Abstract

Apoptosis is an integral part of homeostasis and supports multiple physiological processes such as development and immune defense, thereby directly targeting damaged or unwanted cells without affecting neighbor cells. In the present study, we characterized the apoptotic key factors caspase-3, -7,...

Abstract

Arctic charr have a circumpolar distribution, persevere under extreme environmental conditions, and reach ages unknown to most other salmonids. The Salvelinus genus is primarily composed of species with genomes that are structured more like the ancestral salmonid genome than most Oncorhynchus and ...

Abstract

In mammals, the binding of distinct costimulatory ligands CD80 and CD86 to their receptors is essential for optimal T cell activation. Previous studies have shown that only a single CD80/86 gene exists in rainbow trout (termed rtCD80/86A) and other teleost fish, suggesting that CD80 and CD86 arose...

Abstract

The inflammatory reflex modulates the innate immune system, keeping in check the detrimental consequences of overstimulation. A key player controlling the inflammatory reflex is the alpha 7 acetylcholine receptor (α7nAChR). This receptor is one of the signalling molecules regulating cytokine...

Abstract

When unifying genomic resources among studies and comparing data between species, there is often no better resource than a genome sequence. Having a reference genome for the Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) will enable the extensive genomic resources available for Pacific salmon, Atlantic...

Abstract

Metabolic rate has been linked to growth, reproduction, and survival at the individual level and is thought to have far reaching consequences for the ecology and evolution of organisms. However, metabolic rates must be consistent (i.e. repeatable) over at least some portion of the lifetime in order ...

Abstract

Hepcidin, a hepatic antimicrobial peptide, is a key player of the nonspecific immune system. The structure of hepcidin gene from brown trout (Bthepc) has been characterized at the molecular level. The 1158-bp mRNA generates a coding sequence (CDS) of 267 bp, which encodes an 88-amino acid protein....
