Figures and Tables from this paper

A non-lethal method to estimate CYP1A expression in laboratory and wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
β-naphthoflavone induction of CYP1A in brain of juvenile lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush Walbaum)
Real time quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction results showed that CYP1A mRNA induction in response to BNF exposure occurred rapidly and continued to rise in the BNF-treated lake trout after 4 h, with a peak at or after 2 days, and this trend continued after 16 days of exposure.
Relative quantification of CYP1A gene expression in whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus) exposed to benzo[a]pyrene
It is demonstrated that CYP1A was highly inducible by B[a]P in whitefish head kidney and liver, and to some extent, in brain tissue, as well as in fish responding to PAH contaminant exposure.
Cytochrome P4501A mRNA and protein induction in striped bass (Morone saxatilis)
Investigation of cytochrome P4501A (Cyp1a) induction simultaneously at different levels of biological organization as a biomarker of exposure to PAHs and PHAHs suggests that rapid induction of gene transcription following exposure and subsequent cumulative protein synthesis could provide a useful means of identifying temporal variants in exposure in Morone saxatilis.
Factorial design applied for multiple endpoint toxicity evaluation in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) hepatocytes.
Toxicological application of primary hepatocyte cell cultures of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)--effects of BNF, PCDD and Cd.
CYP1A gene expression in β-naphthoflavone-induced grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) cell lines.
The results indicated CYP1A expression level in vitro had certain correlation with that in vivo, and illustrates the high potential of fish cell lines in ecotoxicology.


Expression of CYP1A1 in livers and gonads of Pacific salmon: quantitation of mRNA levels by RT-cPCR
New methods to use fish cytochrome P4501A to assess marine organic pollutants.
The cytochrome P450 system of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar): II. Variations in hepatic catalytic activities and isozyme patterns during an annual reproductive cycle
The results point to the important role of sex steroids such as estradiol-17β as major factors in the regulation of final sexual maturation and indicate that there may be estradio-17 β independent events of equal importance in the early stages of gonadal maturation that may involve the P450 system.
Effects of piperonyl butoxide and β‐naphthoflavone on cytochrome P4501A expression and activity in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)
The results show that PBO, although acutely functioning as a CYP1A inhibitor, is able to induce CYP2A expression in salmon liver and the inductive properties of PBO and BNF on CYP 1A expression was also demonstrated in primary cultures of salmon hepatocytes.
Effects of temperature acclimation on the expression of hepatic cytochrome P4501A mRNA and protein in the fish Fundulus heteroclitus.
Does an association between pesticide use and subsequent declines in catch of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) represent a case of endocrine disruption?
Concentrations of 4-NP described here are within current ranges encountered in industrial effluents and municipal sewage outfalls, and within a range in which estrogenic effects might be anticipated.
Cytochrome P450 1A expression in midwater fishes: potential effects of chemical contaminants in remote oceanic zones.
Mesopelagic fish in the western North Atlantic are exposed chronically to inducers of CYP1A at levels that appear to be biochemically active in those fish.
