Development of Atlantic salmon and sea bream primary cell culture systems

Protocols have been developed for the primary cultures of hepatocytes, adipocytes and enterocytes from Atlantic salmon and sea bream. These cells have been tested for the induction of PPAR expression and the expression of PPAR-target genes, as well as for global changes in fatty acid and lipd metabolism in response to treatment with PPAR ligands.

The above developed systems have the potential to be used for the study of a variety of other processes in addition to the PPAR-regulated lipid metabolism.
