Abstract:
Over the last two decades, a wide range of chemicals in the aquatic environment have been shown to elicit disruptive effects on the endocrine system and, in turn, alter physiological function. However, the underlying mechanisms for these effects remain largely elusive. In this thesis, a molecular approach (using DNA microarrays and RTPCR) was employed to investigate the mechanistic basis for estrogenic disruption in ling the zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model species.
