We isolated a novel type of aromatase cDNA from a Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) ovary cDNA library. Because this aromatase is phylogenetically related to brain aromatase (CYP19b) of goldfish,(More)
Involvement of Ad4BP/SF-1 in the ovarian cytochrome P-450 aromatase (oP450arom) gene expression was investigated using ovarian follicles of the Nile tilapia, possessing an average 14-day spawning(More)
In Heteropneustes fossilis, contents and turnovers of hypothalamic catecholamines (CA) and activities of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) and phenylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase (PNMT) showed(More)
In the present study the expression of 13 genes known to be involved in sex differentiation and steroidogenesis in catfish was analyzed during gonadal ontogeny by quantitative real-time RT-PCR. Dmrt1(More)
Environmental estrogens are major cause of endocrine disruption in vertebrates, including aquatic organisms. Teleosts are valuable and popular models for studying the effects of endocrine disrupting(More)
