Exposure to diethylstilbestrol during embryonic and larval stages of medaka fish (Oryzias latipes) leads to sex reversal in genetic males and reduced gonad weight in genetic females.

Abstract

Molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in artificially induced ovarian differentiation were analyzed by exposing embryos of medaka (Oryzias latipes) to a potent nonsteroidal estrogen, diethylstilbestrol (DES). Embryos were exposed for short-exposure (SE) [from 0 to 8 d postfertilization (dpf)] and long-exposure (LE) periods (from 0 to 18/28 dpf) to 1 ng… (More)
