Among vertebrates, teleost fish have the greatest capacity for estrogen production in the brain. Previously, we characterized the distribution of the estrogen-synthesizing enzyme aromatase in the brain of the midshipman fish. Here, we investigated the distribution of estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha). A partial cDNA of ERalpha was cloned and used to generate midshipman-specific primers for RT and real-time PCR which identified transcripts in liver and ovary, the CNS, and the sensory epithelium… CONTINUE READING
