Effects of 17β-estradiol (E2) on mature female squirrelfish in terms of liver zinc, plasma vitellogenin (VTG), testosterone (T),17β-estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) levels; hepatic metallothionein mRNA levels (MT mRNA); and MT protein levels in cytosolic (C)liver fractions.Other details as in Table 2.
