3-Methylcholanthrene (3-MC) significantly induces aryl hydrocarbon (benzo[a]pyrene) hydroxylase (AHH) activity in mature and juvenile Cyprinus carpio of both sexes. The degree of induction of AHH by 3-MC in mature fish is significantly lower than that in juveniles and induction in mature males is significantly higher than in mature females. Pretreatment with sex steroids (testosterone in males and estradiol in females) significantly reduces 3-MC-inducibility of AHH in both mature and juvenile… CONTINUE READING
