- ... A major development in fishery science has been the Fulton's condition factor (CF) as a reliable physiological index of fish growth and health status (Fulton 1902). As a general rule, CF-value greater than 1 (>1) should be regarded as an indicator for good growth and health. Therefore, exposure of fish to contaminants in the environment will be expected to produce a reduction in scope for growth, ...

- ... Remodeling the muscle metabolic machinery in mammals in response to energetic challenges depends on the energy sensor AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and its ability to phosphorylate PPAR γ coactivator 1 α (PGC1α), which in turn coactivates metabolic genes through direct and indirect association with DNA-binding proteins such as the nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1) (Wu et al., 1999). The in ...
