- Refuging rainbow trout selectively exploit flows behind tandem cylinders
Highlighted Article: Closely spaced structures submerged within a current produce organized flows that encourage refuging in fish.
- Pushing the limits of glucose kinetics: how rainbow trout cope with a carbohydrate overload
Summary: Like mammals, rainbow trout have the impressive capacity to suppress hepatic glucose production completely and to stimulate disposal strongly when coping with a large glucose load.
- Recombinant interleukin-1β dilates steelhead trout coronary microvessels: effect of temperature and role of the endothelium, nitric oxide and prostaglandins
Summary: The pro-inflammatory cytokine (r)interleukin-1β dilates isolated coronary microvessels of steelhead trout in a concentration-dependent manner: an effect that is not influenced by incubation at high temperature (20°C) and is partially mediated by prostaglandins.
- Ammonia first? The transition from cutaneous to branchial ammonia excretion in developing rainbow trout is not altered by exposure to chronically high NaCl
Summary: Rearing larval rainbow trout in high NaCl reveals support for the ‘ammonia hypothesis’, which posits that ammonia excretion is the earliest gill function over development and may drive gill ontogeny.
- Unsteady turbulent boundary layers in swimming rainbow trout
Summary: Characterization of the unsteady boundary layer behaviour adjacent to the undulatory body surface of rainbow trout during steady swimming reveals some remarkable new phenomena.
- Analysis of muscle fibre input dynamics using a myog:GFP transgenic trout model
Summary: A myogenin:GFP transgenic trout line displaying fluorescence in small nascent muscle fibres was generated to trace the hyperplastic growth of myotomal muscle throughout the trout's lifespan and in various physiological contexts.
