AbstractIn teleost fish, body color varies in response to changes in background color. The color is lighter in a white background than in a black background. Melanin- concentrating hormone (MCH) produced in hypothalamiand agouti signaling protein (ASP) in skins turn body color pale by aggregating pigments, while melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) encoded on a proopiomelanocortin (POMC) gene disperses pigments. In the present study, we investigated the effects of a black or white background on expression levels of the genes for the hormonal peptides and corresponding receptors by real time RT-PCR in goldfish (Carassiusauratus).
