High impact information on Esocidae

  • Luminescence methods were used to examine the interaction of Eu(III) and Tb(III) with parvalbumin isozyme III from pike (Esox lucius) [1].
  • We then carried out reverse transcription-polymerase chain reactions to amplify central fragments of the FbPase cDNAs from liver and muscle of Gallus gallus, Xenopus laevis, and Esox lucius, respectively [2].
  • To achieve this objective, three fish species (northern pike, lake whitefish and yellow perch) commonly found in sympatry in Laurentian Shield lakes but displaying different ecological and physiological characteristics were analysed [3].
  • We show here that 2-[(125)I]iodomelatonin binds specifically to membrane preparations from Pike (Esox lucius, L.) pituitaries (K(D): 556 pM; B(max): 2.8 fmol/mg proteins) [4].
  • Uptake and depletion of plasma 17alpha-methyltestosterone during induction of masculinization in muskellunge, Esox masquinongy: effect on plasma steroids and sex reversal [5].

Anatomical context of Esocidae


Associations of Esocidae with chemical compounds

  • Activities of pineal N-acetyltransferase (NAT) and hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase, involved in the biosynthesis of melatonin from serotonin, were assessed over 24 h in the pineal organ of pikes (Esox lucius, L.; teleosts) entrained to natural (winter) environmental conditions [11].
  • NADPH-cytochrome c reductase, cytochrome -450, benzo[a]pyrene mono-oxygenase, epoxide hydratase, and glutathione S-transferase activities in the liver of the Northern pike (Esox lucius) have been measured and partially characterized [12].
  • S-9 fractions from the liver of the Northern pike were found to convert benzo[a]pyrene and 2-aminoanthracene to mutagenic metabolites [13].
  • Metabolism of testosterone and progesterone by gastrointestinal tissues of the pike (Esox lucius) [14].
  • Large striped bass, chain pickerel (Esox niger), and walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) from Deep Creek Lake and Liberty Reservoir exceeded the FDA action level of 1 mg Hg/kg [15].

Gene context of Esocidae

  • Brain and plasma acetylcholinesterase (AChE; EC and plasma butyrylcholinesterase (BChE; EC specific activities were assayed in 16 freshwater teleosts belonging to four families: Cyprinidae, Percidae, Esocidae and Lotidae [16].
  • In the present study 63Ni2+ was applied in the olfactory chambers of pikes (Esox lucius) and the rate at which the metal was transported in the primary olfactory neurons was determined by beta-spectrometry [17].
  • Several egg incubation media, including saline, Ringer's solution, and Ringer's solution supplemented with bovine serum albumin (BSA), were found suitable to maintain the egg fertility as high as in muskellunge ovarian fluid [18].
  • A mixture of long-chain furan fatty acids was prepared as methyl esters from testes lipids of Northern pike (Esox lucius) [19].
