Carin Andersson, Katrin Lundstedt-Enkel, Ioanna Katsiadaki, William V. Holt, Katrien J.W. Van Look and Jan Örberg A chemometrical approach to study interactions between ethynylestradiol and an AhR-agonist in stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) Journal of Chemometrics 24
We show that Ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD) activity in gill and liver as well as sperm quality in male three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) is affected after co-exposure to 17α-ethynylestradiol (EE2) and the AhR-agonist β-naphthoflavone (BNF). If the capacity to induce gill EROD activity is a general property of estrogen acting chemicals, our finding is important. We suggest that a gill EROD assay could be used as a sensitive biomarker for biomonitoring purposes.
