Plasma protein changes in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) during parr-smolt transformation
Date of Original Version
1. 1. Changes in plasma proteins of Atlantic salmon (Salmon salar) during parr-smolt transformation were analyzed by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. 2. 2. An increase in the number of low molecular weight proteins (<29 kilodaltons) was associated with smoltification. 3. 3. Alterations in the quantities and relative proportions of several proteins (molecular weights 57-63 kilodaltons) were observed. 4. 4. These changes may indicate a role for specific plasma proteins in transition and adaptation to the marine environment. © 1989.
