|Research area||Unravelling the fundamentals of glucocorticoid actions across vertebrates|
|Research topic||Glucocorticoid-mediated bone (de)formation|
|Species||Carp (Cyprinus carpio)|
This study investigates the correlation between HPI-axis activity, using expression of key genes and scale cortisol levels as indicators, and the occurrence and variability of skeletal deformations, using µCT, in the progeny of a single female and male through-out the life cycle of common carp.
Keywords: fish, HPI, glucocorticoid, stress, bone deformation
