Development and function of the forebrain gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuronal system has long been the focus of study in various vertebrate species. This system is crucial for reproduction and an important model for studying tangential neuronal migration. In addition, the finding that...
Domestication has produced faster-growing strains of animals for use in agriculture, but selection has been applied with little knowledge of the underlying genetic changes that arose throughout the process. Mammals and birds have been domesticated for thousands of years whereas fish have been...
During endurance flight most birds do not feed and have to rely on their body reserves. Fat and protein is catabolised to meet the high energetic demands. Even though the hormonal regulation of migration is complex and not yet fully understood, the adrenocortical hormone corticosterone...
The physiological responses to stressors, including hormonal profiles and associated tissue responsiveness have been extensively studied in teleosts, but the molecular mechanisms associated with this adaptive response are not well understood. The advent of cDNA microarray technology has...
Microarray and gene expression analysis have been key in our understanding of molecular pathways underlying physiological responses. Arguably, a large number of microarray based studies in fish have examined steroid nuclear receptor signaling (e.g., estrogens, androgens) in the context of both...
Avian eggs contain a variety of steroid hormones, which have been attributed as a tool for maternal phenotypic engineering. The majority of studies focuses on androgens, but also significant amounts of progesterone as well as other steroid hormones have been measured. The question if...
