Abstract [en]

Leptin plays an important role in energy homeostasis and reproductive function in mammals, while its function in fish is still poorly understood, especially its role in reproduction. In the present study, leptin gene expression and circulating leptin plasma levels were measured during sexual maturation in male Atlantic salmon parr. In maturing male salmon, higher hepatic leptin (lepa1) gene expression levels were observed during mid-spermatogenesis compared to immature fish. An upregulation of leptin during sexual maturation has also been observed in a few other teleost species. The physiological significance of elevated leptin levels during the maturational process in teleosts remains to be explored.
