Temperature-dependent energy allocation to growth in Antarctic and boreal eelpout Zoarcidae

, : Temperature-dependent energy allocation to growth in Antarctic and boreal eelpout Zoarcidae. Polar Biology 30(1): 95-107

Antarctic fishes display slower annual growth rates than congeneric species from temperate zones. For an analysis of growth in relation to energy turnover, body composition was analysed in two benthic fish species to establish a whole animal energy budget. The Antarctic eelpout, Pachycara brachycephalum, was maintained at 0, 2, 4 and 6 degrees C and the boreal eelpout, Zoarces viviparus at 4, 6, 12 and 18 degrees C. At maximum food supply the weight gain was highest for P. brachycephalum at 4 degrees C. Routine metabolic rate in acclimated Antarctic eelpouts did not differ between temperatures, whereas in Z. viviparus maximized growth benefited from a reduction of metabolic energy demands at 12 degrees C. The lipid content of liver declined with increasing temperature in both species. The thermal window for growth is based on food conversion efficiency and the level of metabolic energy demand and is limited according to the level of aerobic scope available between pejus temperatures.

An RNA/DNA chimeric oligonucleotide was found to be effective in the targeted correction of point mutations in Escherichia coli, plant, and mammalian genomes. This strategy, named chimeraplasty, has the potential for gene therapy of many genetic d...
