El papel de las hormonas en el estrés porcino

The role of hormones in the stress of pigs

Palabras clave: estrés, hormonas, cerdos


El estrés en los animales productores de carne tiene repercusión en la calidad de la carne y los productos que se obtiene de éstos. En la industria cárnica el problema más común relacionado con el estrés es la carne de baja calidad por ser pálida, blanda y exudativa. En esta revisión se presenta una breve reseña de la metodología del estrés y su interacción con la fisiología y el comportamiento animal. Se describen las hormonas relacionadas con el estrés, cual es su origen y algunas las posibles técnicas de diagnóstico. Se enfatizan las hormonas relacionadas con el músculo y los principales efectos en la fisiología del animal. Se mencionan los cambios neuroendócrinos y cuáles son sus mecanismos. Se describen con detalle las hormonas glucocorticoideas, el cortisol, la serotonina, la dopamina y los ß-adrenérgicos, así como sus principales características y efectos en el organismo vivo.
