Table of Contents

Contributors. Abbreviations. Design for a high speed path for oxygen: Tuna red muscle ultrastructure and vascularization (O. Mathieu-Costello, R.W. Brill, P.W. Hochachka). Circulatory substrate fluxes and their regulation (J.-M. Weber, G. Zwingelstein). Endogenous fuels: non invasive versus invasive approaches (G. van den Thillart, M. van Raaij). Tissue carbohydrate metabolism, gluconeogenesis and hormonal and environmental influences (T.W. Moon, G.D. Foster). Metabolism of the swimbladder tissue (B. Pelster). Glycerophospholipid metabolism (D.R. Tocher). Amino acid metabolism in fish (K. Jürss, R. Bastrop). Protein synthesis in fish (D.F. Houlihan, C.G. Carter, I.D. McCarthy). Nutrient fluxes and regulation in fish intestine (N.L. Collie, R.P. Ferraris). Metabolic organization of thermogenic tissues of fishes (J.S. Ballantyne). Electric Organs: structure, physiology, hormone-sensitivity, and biochemistry (H.H. Zakon). Biochemical and molecular aspects of singing in batrachoidid fishes (P.J. Walsh, T.P. Mommsen, A.H. Bass). Is glycolytic rate controlled by the reversible binding of enzymes to subcellular structures? (S.P.J. Brooks, K.B. Storey). Histidine-related dipeptides: distribution, metabolism, and physiological function (H. Abe). The metabolic consequences of body size (E.M. Goolish). Exercise metabolism of fish (C.D. Moyes, T.G. West). Fasting and starvation (I. Navarro, J. Gutiérrez). Origins of luciferins: ecology of bioluminescence in marine fishes (E.M. Thompson, J.-F. Rees). Species Index. Subject Index.


This fourth volume in the series covers such topics as endogenous fuels, electric organs, histidine-related dipeptides, and origins of luciferins. The book will be invaluable to fisheries scientists, aquaculturists, and animal biochemists, physiologists and endocrinologists; it will provide researchers and students with a pertinent information source from theoretical and experimental angles.
