beta-Naphthoflavone disrupts cortisol production and liver glucocorticoid responsiveness in rainbow trout.

Abstract

We investigated the impact of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) activation on cortisol production in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) using beta-naphthoflavone (BNF) and alpha-naphthoflavone (ANF) as agonist and antagonist of AhR, respectively. Fish were given a single intraperitoneal injection of either corn oil alone or corn oil containing ANF (50 mg/kg… (More)
