Some endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can alter the estrogenic activities of the organism by directly interacting with estrogen receptors (ER) or indirectly through the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis. Recent studies in male Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) indicated that diuron may have anti-androgenic activity augmented by biotransformation.(More)
In rheophilic tropical fish, the use of carp pituitary extract (CPE) is still the main protocol since the use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) induces ovulation, but usually does not provide viable embryos. Thus, in order to generate knowledge to support the establishment of a successful protocol using GnRH, we compared the ovulatory process and(More)
Diuron (3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea) is a widely used herbicide which has been frequently detected in surface waters throughout the world. In vivo bioassay guided fractionation studies indicated that diuron may have estrogenic activity augmented by biotransformation. This study evaluated the effects of diuron and three of its metabolites on(More)
