A battery of biomarkers were used to evaluate the reproductive health and contaminant exposure of Atlantic killifish (Fundulus heteroclitus) inhabiting the heavily industrialized Newark Bay and a reference population from Great Bay, Tuckerton, NJ. The biomarkers investigated included classical endpoints (gonad and liver histopathology, body and tissue morphometrics), hepatic mRNA expression (CYP1A and vitellogenin I), hepatic protein levels (CYP1A and vitellogenin), gonadal aromatase mRNA… CONTINUE READING
