Metabolic changes of notothenioid fish in relation to nutritional status
Entry ID: K058_2007_2008_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Individuals of Trematomus bernacchii and Pagothenia borchgrevinki were captured and used in an experiment to understand metabolic changes, especially pertaining to the lipid transport system (lipoproteins) used, in relation to the nutritional status of the fish. Captured fish were not fed for 12 days to clear the stomach. From each species, n=7 were euthanised following oxygen consumption ... View entire text

Quality The specimens are all in existence and effectively none have been destroyed. Fixed tissues are kept at room temperature and frozen tissues are all stored at -80 degrees at Lincoln University, New Zealand. In some cases, the tissues have been used to extract RNA or DNA or proteins samples and these purified samples are also stored at -20 or -80 degree containment freezers.

The raw experimental data is kept in laboratory books at Lincoln University and on computer files, which are backed up 2 times on portable hard drives.
Access Constraints If the samples need to be transeferred from their current location, the receiving lab needs to have the necessary containment certification (i.e. PC2 containment) and transfers have to be done according to MAF protocol. Otherwise the work will need to be completed at Lincoln University. All access is restricted to approval from Dr Victoria Metcalf.
