A yeast assay based on the gilthead sea bream (teleost fish) estrogen receptor beta for monitoring estrogen mimics.


A yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)-based assay was developed and tested with steroids and chemicals (mostly pesticides). The induction of beta-galactosidase activity was strictly dependent on the presence of seabream (Sparus aurata) betaa estrogen receptor (sbERbetaa) and substances known to have estrogenic activity. 17beta-Estradiol (E(2)) and… (More)
