• Crude oil exposures reveal roles for intracellular calcium cycling in haddock craniofacial and cardiac development 

      Sørhus, Elin; Incardona, John P.; Karlsen, Ørjan; Linbo, Tiffany; Sørensen, Lisbet; Nordtug, Trond; van der Meeren, Terje; Thorsen, Anders; Thorbjørnsen, Maja; Jentoft, Sissel; Edvardsen, Rolf; Meier, Sonnich (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-08-10)
      Recent studies have shown that crude oil exposure affects cardiac development in fish by disrupting excitation-contraction (EC) coupling. We previously found that eggs of Atlantic haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) bind ...
    • Egg buoyancy variability in local populations of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) 

      Jung, Kyung-Mi; Folkvord, Arild; Kjesbu, Olav Sigurd; Agnalt, Ann Lisbeth; Thorsen, Anders; Sundby, Svein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012)
      Previous studies have found strong evidences for Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) egg retention in fjords, which are caused by the combination of vertical salinity structure, estuarine circulation, and egg specific gravity, ...
    • Judging a salmon by its spots: Environmental variation is the primary determinant of spot patterns in Salmo salar 

      Jørgensen, Katarina Mariann; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Besnier, Francois; Thorsen, Anders; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Skaala, Øystein; Malde, Ketil; Glover, Kevin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-04-12)
      Background. In fish, morphological colour changes occur from variations in pigment concentrations and in the morphology, density, and distribution of chromatophores in the skin. However, the underlying mechanisms remain ...
    • Production and verification of the first Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) clonal lines 

      Hansen, Tom Johnny; Penman, David J.; Glover, Kevin; Fraser, Thomas; Vågseth, Tone; Thorsen, Anders; Sørvik, Anne Grete Eide; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background In several fish species homozygous and heterozygous clonal lines have been produced using gynogenetic and androgenetic techniques. These lines are standardized and can be reproduced over generations. In rainbow ...
    • Vgll3 and the Hippo pathway are regulated in Sertoli cells upon entry and during puberty in Atlantic salmon testis 

      Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Ayllon, Fernando; Kleppe, Lene; Sørhus, Elin; Skaftnesmo, Kai Ove; Furmanek, Tomasz; Segafredo, Frida Thyri; Thorsen, Anders; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Taranger, Geir Lasse; Andersson, Eva; Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Wargelius, Anna; Edvardsen, Rolf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-01-30)
      Vgll3 is linked to age at maturity in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). However, the molecular mechanisms involving Vgll3 in controlling timing of puberty as well as relevant tissue and cell types are currently unknown. Vgll3 ...
    • Water temperature and dietary histidine affect cataract formation in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) diploid and triploid yearling smolt 

      Sambraus, Florian; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Remø, Sofie C.; Hevrøy, Ernst Morten; Nilsen, Tom Ole; Thorsen, Anders; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Waagbø, Rune (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-09)
      The aim of the present study was to investigate cataract development in diploid (2N) and triploid (3N) Atlantic salmon smolts and post-smolts at two water temperatures (10 and 16 °C) given diets with different histidine ...
