The development of molecular and biochemical tools to assess changes in yellow perch (Perca flavescens) growth hormone

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Obtain the full-length perch growth hormone (GH) cDNA.
  • Clone and express the yellow perch GH mRNA in a protein expression system.
  • Assay the recombinant perch GH for growth promoting activity in juvenile perch.
  • Produce antibodies to the recombinant perch GH.
