Abstract:   (479 Views)
A feeding trial with two zinc levels (50 and 200 mg/kg) and control level (0 mg/kg of zinc) were conducted to investigate the pyruvate kinase (PK) activity and electrophoretic pattern of muscle in Caspian Kutum (Rutilus frisii kutum). Two hundred and seventy juvenile fish (0.56±0.06g; mean ±SD) were randomly distributed in 9 aquaria (50L) and were fed three times daily for 3 months. Muscle protein expression, pyruvate kinase activity and zinc concentration were detected in Caspian Kutum muscle. Results showed that the highest amount of zinc was observed in fish fed 200mg/kg zinc in diet. Electrophoretic pattern of proteins extracted from the muscle were mostly constituted by myosin heavy (HC) and light (LC) chains which are characterized with three different protein regions (  LC1F, LC2F, LC3F). During the experimental period changes were found in LC2F and LC3F amounts. Pyruvate kinase activity showed a significant increase at the end of the experiment. Significantly positive correlation was observed between weight gain and pyruvate kinase activity in fish fed 50 mg/kg zinc (r=0.95; p≤0.05) .In conclusion, it appears that dietary zinc with 200 mg/kg did not affect intensity of separated protein bands and PK activity of muscle in Caspian Kutum.
