Persian sturgeon Acipenser persicus is a critically endangered species, mainly due to overexploitation for its caviar. The permanence of populations of this species in the Caspian Sea is fully dependent on restocking programs. Accordingly, it is considered as an interesting target for aquaculture for both restocking and commercial purposes.

Persian sturgeon Acipenser persicus is a critically endangered species, mainly due to overexploitation for its caviar. The permanence of populations of this species in the Caspian Sea is fully dependent on restocking programs. Accordingly, it is considered as an interesting target for aquaculture for both restocking and commercial purposes. In addition, as a Chondrostei, it exhibits one of the slowest rates of molecular evolution among vertebrates and is propounded as an excellent candidate for phylogenetic analysis and evolutionary biology.
In this study, the early ontogeny of some key digestive enzymes precursors was determined at molecular level, aiming to obtain basic knowledge on the acquisition of digestive capacity of this species, and at the same time, to advance in its phylogenetic status from the point of view of digestion. For this purpose, A. Two isoforms for pga and at least six for try1 were obtained in this study, probably due to the additional genome duplication which sturgeons suffered along evolution.
Phylogenetic analysis of the deduced amino acids sequences from the studied genes demonstrated that this species has a close evolutionary distance to Holostei, coelacanths, and tetrapods, including amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. According to our results, expression of all the genes increased gradually over time and reached maximum levels around 18 dph.
This pattern, which was comparable to length and weight data, could indicate that around 3 weeks after hatching, the digestive capacity of the Persian sturgeon changes from larval to juvenile mode. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Rent this article via DeepDyve.

Stocks of sturgeons are decreasing dramatically Conte et al.

The Persian sturgeon Acipenser persicus is a species of fish in the family Acipenseridae. It is heavily fished for its flesh and its roe and is limited in its up-river migrations by damming of the rivers. Young fish feed on small invertebrates, graduating to larger prey such as crabs and fish as they grow. The threats faced by this fish include excessive fishing with the removal of immature fish before they have bred, damming of the rivers, loss of spawning areas and water pollution. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has listed the fish as critically endangered and has suggested that the increased provision of hatcheries could be of benefit. The Persian Sturgeon has an elongated, bulky body with a bluish tint.
