Comparative accumulations of labelled carotenoids (14C-astaxanthin, 3H-canthaxanthin and 3H-zeaxanthin) and their metabolic conversions in mature female rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)



Comparative accumulations of labelled carotenoids (14C-astaxanthin, 3H-canthaxanthin and 3H-zeaxanthin) and their metabolic conversions in mature female rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)



Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. B Comparative Biochemistry 102(1): 61-65



1. One force-fed meal containing labelled 14C-astaxanthin (14C-Ax) and 3H-canthaxanthin (3H-Cx) or 3H-zeaxanthin (3H-Zx) was given to eight mature female rainbow trout. Ninety-six hours after the test meal ingestion, trout were killed and liver, skin, muscle and ovaries were dissected out. 2. Ax accumulated slightly more in muscle than Cx but in all tissues Ax and Cx were very significantly more concentrated than Zx. 3. 3H-Zx metabolites were found only in the liver, whereas 14C-phoenicoxanthin was the only metabolic pigment from 14C-Ax detected and was found in all investigated tissues. 4. 3H-Ax was found in the liver of all trout indicating that 3H-Cx and 3H-Zx were Ax precursors, and that salmonids probably possess carotenoid oxidative pathways unknown until now. 5. Labelled retinol1 and retinol2 were detected only in the liver and 3H-Zx was largely the predominant precursor of these two vitamin A forms.
