The activity of fish monooxygenases has been used as a monitoring tool to evaluate contamination by cytochrome P450 inducing agents. In this study ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) activity was analyzed in males and females of Nile tilapia exposed to a low concentration of paraquat (PQ) at 17 degrees C and 27 degrees C. PQ-treated fish showed a high(More)
Reports on teleost liver morphology reflect both controversial and confirmed interspecies variations. Choosing Nile tilapia as a model, we described the histology and 3D organization of all types of vascular-biliary tracts and their spatial relationships from the organ hilum toward the hepatic vein opening(s). The portal tracts entering the hilum, termed(More)
The normal organ morphology and function in fishes varies according to several natural factors, and such variability is found in liver. Knowledge about the normal liver microanatomy is fundamental to pathological evaluation. Even though gender and temperature are important factors for modulating morphophysiological processes in fishes, their influences on(More)
