Disease relevance of Oncorhynchus keta

  • Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) was first discovered in the pituitary of chum salmon because of its role in the regulation of skin pallor [1].
  • Affinity of this enzyme with arginine tRNA was determine from Vmas/Km values and it was in the order of rabbit, Chum salmon, B. subtilis, E. coli and yeast in both systems [2].
