Paradoxical effects of cadmium on antibacterial antibody responses in two fish species: inhibition in cunners (Tautogolabrus adspersus) and enhancement in striped bass (Morone saxatilis).
Examples of the effects of sublethal doses of single pollutants on immune-system suppression include the effect of cadmium exposure on antibody response in the cunner, Tautogolabrus adspersus (Robohm 1986) and on cellular response in rainbow trout (Thuvander & Carlstein 1991) as well as the effects of copper in increasing susceptibility of salmonids to IHN virus (Hetrick et al.
Differential spawning success among territorial male cunners, Tautogolabrus adspersus (Labridae).
Adult and sexually mature male and female cunner (Tautogolabrus adspersus) were exposed to 17[beta]-estradiol, ethynylestradiol, or estrone, three steroidal estrogens that elicit the vitellogenic response.
In this article, we report on the correlation between measures of reproductive output in laboratory studies with adult cunner (Tautogolabrus adspersus) and the widely used indicator of estrogen exposure, male plasma vitellogenin expression.
In this article, we report on the correlation between measures of reproductive output in laboratory-exposed adult cunner of both sexes and male plasma vitellogenin expression.
In laboratory studies, we gathered data on egg production, egg viability, egg fertility, sperm motility (presence or absence), male GSI, and male plasma vitellogenin concentrations in cunner over a series of exposure experiments to 17[beta]-estradiol, 17[alpha]-ethynylestradiol, and estrone.
Cunner were collected from Narragansett Bay off the Jamestown pier at the southern tip of Jamestown, Rhode Island (USA), during the summers of 1999 and 2000.
To investigate the correlation between male plasma vitellogenin concentrations and male GSI, data from the 103 surviving male cunner were analyzed.
