Keywords:

  • European Sea Bass, transcriptomics in compensatory growth, after fasting;
  • “compensatory growth” or “catch up” enhancing feed conversion efficiency;
  • molecular cloning, in sea bass, “transcriptome-focused” information;
  • chronic feed deprivation, refeeding, and impact on mRNA in tissue;
  • HUFA biosynthesis, regulation in fish, optimization in aquaculture;
  • intestinal peptide transport, dietary proteins on PepT1 expression;
