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.
