Effects of monocrotophos on the reproductive axis in the male goldfish (Carassius auratus): potential mechanisms underlying vitellogenin induction.


Monocrotophos (MCP) is a highly toxic organophosphorus pesticide that has been banned in many countries. Both vitellogenin mRNA expression and secretion were significantly induced in male goldfish by exposure to an MCP-based pesticide, suggesting that MCP has significant estrogenic properties. To elucidate the mechanisms of action of MCP on vitellogenin… (More)
