Differential metabolic profiles associated to movement behaviour of stream-resident brown trout (Salmo trutta)

The mechanisms that can contribute in the fish movement strategies and the associated behaviour can be complex and related to the physiology, genetic and ecology of each species. In the case of the brown trout (Salmo trutta), in recent research works, individual differences in mobility have been observed
in a population living in a high mountain river reach (Pyrenees, NE Spain). The population is mostly sedentary but a small percentage of individuals exhibit a mobile behavior, mainly upstream movements. Metabolomics can reflect changes in the physiological process and can determine different profiles depending on behaviour. Here, a non-targeted metabolomics approach was used to find possible changes in the blood metabolomic profile of S. trutta related to its movement behaviour, using a minimally invasive sampling. Results showed a differentiation in the metabolomic profiles of the trouts and different level concentrations of some metabolites (e.g. cortisol) according to the home range classification (pattern of movements: sedentary or mobile). The change in metabolomic profiles can generally occur during the upstream movement and probably reflects the changes in metabolite profile from the non-mobile season to mobile season. This study reveals the contribution of the metabolomic analyses to better understand the behaviour of organisms.

Genotyping of common SIRPB1 copy number variant using Paralogue Ratio Test coupled to MALDI-MS quantification Royo Sánchez-Palencia, José Luis; Pascual Pons, Mariona; Lupiañez, Arantxa; Sanchez Lopez, Isabel; Fibla Palazón, Joan (Elsevier, 2015)Copy number variant (CNV) regions have been proven to have a significant impact on gene expression. Some of them have been also found to be associated to different human diseases. CNV genotyping is often prone to error and ...
A common copy-number variant within SIRPB1 correlates with human Out-of-Africa migration after genetic drift correction Royo Sánchez-Palencia, José Luis; Valls Marsal, Joan; Acemel, Rafael D.; Gómez-Marin, Carlos; Pascual Pons, Mariona; Lupiañez, Arantxa; Gomez-Skarmeta, Jose Luis; Fibla Palazón, Joan (Public Library of Science, 2018)Previous reports have proposed that personality may have played a role on human Out-Of- Africa migration, pinpointing some genetic variants that were positively selected in the migrating populations. In this work, we ...
