Liver esterase polymorphisms in sepat Siam (Trichogaster pectoralis)


Tan, S. K. and Gan, Yik Yuen and Tan, Soon Guan (1980) Liver esterase polymorphisms in sepat Siam (Trichogaster pectoralis). Pertanika, 3 (2). pp. 92-96. ISSN 0126-6128


Esterase D and general esterases (which use a- or J3-naphthyl acetate as substrates) were investigated electrophoretically in the paddy field fish, Trichogaster pectoralis. Variants were observed for these enzymes. It is hypothesized that esterase D phenotypes are due to two codominant alleles at an autosomal locus, and that four loci are involved in the control of the general esterases.
