Eggshell and egg yolk proteins in fish: hepatic proteins for the next generation: oogenetic, population, and evolutionary implications of endocrine disruption
The oocyte is the starting point for a new generation. Most of the machinery for DNA and protein synthesis needed for the developing embryo is made autonomously by the fertilized oocyte. However, inExpand

Municipal landfill leachates: a significant source for new and emerging pollutants.
Landfills have historically remained the most common methods of organized waste disposal and still remain so in many regions of the world. Thus, they may contain wastes resulting from several decadesExpand

Induction of hepatic estrogen receptor in juvenile Atlantic salmon in vivo by the environmental estrogen, 4-nonylphenol.
Alkylphenol ethoxylate degradation products such as nonylphenol and octylphenol are shown to have estrogenic effects. Nonylphenol induces synthesis of vitellogenin (a precursor of egg yolk proteins)Expand

Recombinant transthyretin purification and competitive binding with organohalogen compounds in two gull species (Larus argentatus and Larus hyperboreus).
Glaucous gulls (Larus hyperboreus) from Svalbard, Norway (marine), and herring gulls (Larus argentatus) from the Laurentian Great Lakes (freshwater) of North America are differentially exposed toExpand

Xenobiotic and steroid biotransformation enzymes in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) liver treated with an estrogenic compound, 4‐nonylphenol
Hepatic microsomal biotransformation reactions with xenobiotic and steroid substrates have been investigated in 4-nonylphenol (NP: 1, 5, 25, and 125 mg/kg body weight)-treated juvenile AtlanticExpand

Molecular and biochemical biomarkers in environmental monitoring: a comparison of biotransformation and antioxidant defense systems in multiple tissues.
The cytochrome P450 pathway and antioxidant responses are known for their responsiveness to environmental pollutants and are frequently used as biomarkers at the transcriptional, translational andExpand

Molecular ontogenesis of digestive capability and associated endocrine control in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) larvae.
We have profiled the expression of twelve genes, in order to provide an overview on the molecular ontogeny of digestive capability with the associated endocrine control during Atlantic cod (GadusExpand

Differential biomarker gene and protein expressions in nonylphenol and estradiol-17beta treated juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
The time- and dose-dependent transcriptional and translational expression of biomarker genes in nonylphenol (NP) and estradiol-17beta (E(2)) treated juvenile rainbow trout is reported. Fish wereExpand

Biotransformation of PCBs in relation to phase I and II xenobiotic-metabolizing enzyme activities in ringed seals (Phoca hispida) from Svalbard and the Baltic Sea.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) may induce activity of hepatic enzymes, mainly Phase I monooxygenases and conjugating Phase II enzymes, that catalyze the metabolism of PCBs leading to formation ofExpand

Recombinant albumin and transthyretin transport proteins from two gull species and human: chlorinated and brominated contaminant binding and thyroid hormones.
Environmentally relevant concentrations of selected polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardant congeners and their hydroxylated (OH) and methoxylatedExpand
