|Research area||Unravelling the fundamentals of glucocorticoid actions across vertebrates|
|Research topic||Glucocorticoid-mediated bone (de)formation|
|Species||Carp (Cyprinus carpio)|
This study focuses on the influence of HPI ontogeny and early life (stress induced) de novo synthesis of glucocorticoids by the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Interrenal axis using carp (Cyprinus carpio) as a model on bone: expression of key genes in stress and bone mediated pathways.
