Protein and gene expression of VTG in response to 4-nonylphenol in rockfish (Sebastes schlegeli).

Abstract

To investigate the in vivo estrogenic activity of 4-nonylphenol (4-NP) on reproductive function, we have measured the expression level of rockfish vitellogenin (rVTG) mRNA, concentration of plasma VTG and levels of plasma estradiol-17beta(E(2)) and testosterone (T) by radioimmunoassay (RIA). An rVTG mRNA transcript of approximately 4.0 kb was extracted from… (More)
