The modulation of phagocytic cells by beta-estradiol, 11-ketotestosterone and progesterone was analyzed in common carp Cyprinus carpio. Carp kidney leukocytes were cultured in RPMI 1640 medium containing 0.1, 1, 10, 100 or 1000 nM concentration of each hormone. The production of superoxide anion, nitric oxide (NO) and phagocytosis were measured in vitro. Similar concentrations of cortisol were used as control. Phagocytic activities of carp macrophages was suppressed by treatment with beta… CONTINUE READING
