A first glimp on the incorporation rate of cortisol in scales of carp (Cyprinus carpio)

StressChron Framework:

Project code 072
Acronym CORTD2
Role Coordinator
Research area Unravelling the fundamentals of glucocorticoid actions across vertebrates
Research topic Mechanism(s) of glucocorticoid incorporation
Vertebrate Fish
Species Carp (Cyprinus carpio)


The research goal is providing a first glimp on the incorporation rate of cortisol in the scale of carp (Cyprinus carpio) using cortisol-d2 spiked feed. Hereby, molecular data on scales are correlated to scale cortisol levels quantified by ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS).
