Localisation of estrogen responsive genes in the liver and testis of Murray rainbowfish Melanotaenia fluviatilis exposed to 17beta-estradiol.


The localisation of estrogen receptors (ERalpha and ERbeta) and vitellogenin (VTG) transcripts were examined in the liver and testis in male rainbowfish exposed to 17beta-estradiol (E2; 0, 50 and 500 ng/L) via the water for up to 7 days. The ER transcripts were localised within the perinuclear region of the hepatocytes and were up-regulated with E2 exposure… (More)
