Low-dose exposure to bisphenol A and replacement bisphenol S induces precocious hypothalamic neurogenesis in embryonic zebrafish
Significance Here we demonstrate that bisphenol A (BPA) exposure during a time point analogous to the second trimester in humans has real and measurable effects on brain development and behavior.Expand

Functional Production and Characterization of a Fibrin-Specific Single-Chain Antibody Fragment from Bacillus subtilis: Effects of Molecular Chaperones and a Wall-Bound Protease on Antibody Fragment
ABSTRACT To develop an ideal blood clot imaging and targeting agent, a single-chain antibody (SCA) fragment based on a fibrin-specific monoclonal antibody, MH-1, was constructed and produced viaExpand

Impact of glyphosate and glyphosate‐based herbicides on the freshwater environment
Glyphosate [N‐(phosphonomethyl) glycine] is a broad spectrum, post emergent herbicide and is among the most widely used agricultural chemicals globally. Initially developed to control the growth ofExpand

Molecular cloning of estrogen receptor α and expression pattern of estrogen receptor subtypes in male and female goldfish
Estrogen plays an important role in the regulation of gonadotropin production in vertebrates. In this study, we isolated the estrogen receptor (ER) alpha cDNA from the goldfish pituitary. Primers forExpand

Seasonal effect of GnIH on gonadotrope functions in the pituitary of goldfish
Gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH) inhibits gonadotropin release in birds and mammals. To investigate its role in teleosts, we examined the effects of synthetic goldfish (g)GnIH on pituitary LH-βExpand

Estrogen receptor function and regulation in fish and other vertebrates.
Estrogens, steroid hormones critically involved in reproductive processes of vertebrates, signal primarily through their intracellular estrogen receptors (ERs). The ERs belong to a superfamily ofExpand

Functional significance of nuclear estrogen receptor subtypes in the liver of goldfish.
Estrogens work by binding to and activating specific estrogen receptors (ERs). Although mammals have two major nuclear ER subtypes (ERalpha and ERbeta), three subtypes have been shown in teleost fishExpand

Cadmium affects the expression of metallothionein (MT) and glutathione peroxidase (GPX) mRNA in goldfish, Carassius auratus.
Cadmium (Cd) is a widespread non-essential heavy metal that enters the aquatic environment as a result of natural and human-caused activities, including industrial effluent, mining, and agriculturalExpand

Pituitary gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor activity in goldfish and catfish: seasonal and gonadal effects
The goldfish pituitary contains two classes of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) binding sites, a high affinity/low capacity site and a low affinity/high capacity site (Habibiet al. 1987a),Expand
