The loach is one of the most important fish species in aquaculture in China. The study of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) will be essential for the determination of the functional role of the PPARα and PPARγ in loach fish. We used immunohistochemistry for PPARα and PPARγ at some stages of development beginning from the age o...
