Nutritional programming in Nile tilapia <i>(</i>Oreochromis<i> </i>niloticus<i>)</i>: Effect of low dietary protein on growth and the intestinal microbiome and transcriptome

PLOS ONE, 18(10).

By: C. Deck n, S. Salger n, H. Reynolds n, M. Tada n, M. Severance n, P. Ferket n, H. Egna*, M. Fatema*, S. Haque*, R. Borski n

TL;DR: Results suggest protein restriction for up to 14 days early in development leads to enhanced growth and feed efficiency with minimal effects on gut microbes or intestinal function, while Protein restriction beyond this period appears detrimental to fish growth and health as underscores by expression of disease related genes and higher mortality rates.

MeSH headings : Animals; Bass; Binding, Competitive / drug effects; Crosses, Genetic; Dose-Response Relationship, Drug; Growth Hormone / analysis; Growth Hormone / biosynthesis; Immunohistochemistry; In Vitro Techniques; Insulin / pharmacokinetics; Insulin-Like Growth Factor Binding Proteins / metabolism; Insulin-Like Growth Factor I / pharmacokinetics; Insulin-Like Growth Factor II / pharmacokinetics; Peptide Fragments / pharmacokinetics; Pituitary Gland / chemistry; Pituitary Gland / cytology; Pituitary Gland / drug effects; Pituitary Gland / metabolism; Prolactin / analysis; Prolactin / biosynthesis; Radioligand Assay; Receptor, IGF Type 1 / chemistry; Receptor, IGF Type 1 / metabolism; Substrate Specificity
TL;DR: These results are the first to localize IGF-I receptors to PRL cells, correlate IGF- I binding to its efficacy in regulating GH and PRL secretion, as well as demonstrate that IGFBPs may play a significant role in modulating the disparate actions of IGF-i on PRL and GH secretion.

Signal transduction mechanisms mediating rapid, nongenomic effects of cortisol on prolactin release

Borski, R. J., Hyde, G. N., & Fruchtman, S. (2002, May). STEROIDS, Vol. 67, pp. 539–548.

By: R. Borski n, G. Hyde n & S. Fruchtman n

author keywords: steroid hormone; adenylyl cyclase; calcium; cAMP; nongenomic action; phospholipase C; membrane receptor
MeSH headings : Animals; Calcium / metabolism; Cell Membrane / drug effects; Cell Membrane / metabolism; Cells, Cultured; Cyclic AMP / metabolism; Hydrocortisone / pharmacology; Models, Biological; Osmolar Concentration; Pituitary Gland / cytology; Pituitary Gland / drug effects; Pituitary Gland / metabolism; Prolactin / metabolism; Second Messenger Systems / drug effects; Second Messenger Systems / physiology; Signal Transduction / drug effects; Signal Transduction / physiology; Tilapia
TL;DR: Findings indicate that the acute inhibitory effects of cortisol on PRL release occur through a nongenomic mechanism involving interactions with the plasma membrane and inhibition of both the Ca(2+) and cAMP signal transduction pathways. (via Semantic Scholar)
