In the farmed flatfish Senegalese sole, F1 males reared in captivity often show lower sperm production and fertilization capacity than wild-caught males. To gain insights into the molecular mechanisms that may be altered in the F1 testis, we used 2-D...

Adrenosterone (androst-4-ene-3,11,17-trione, 11-oxoandrostenedione) is an endogenous steroid hormone that has been promoted as a dietary supplement capable of reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass. It is proposed that adrenosterone may function as an inhibitor of the 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type...

The onset of spawning behavior in male salmonids can be closely correlated to circulating levels of the progestin 17 alpha,20 beta-dihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (20-P). However, evidence that 20-P plays a causal role in the development and maintenance of spawning behavior in male...

Brain homogenates from male Atlantic salmon parr aromatized tritiated androstenedione to estrogens. The aromatase activity in homogenates of whole brains from castrated male parr was lower than that in homogenates from sham-operated male parr in autumn. This was also found...
