Abstract
    Aromatase activity is well documented in the teleost brain and ovary. However, the role of aromatase in other organs or in the process of sex differentiation is less clear. This paper briefly reviews the current knowledge on aromatase in teleosts and describes the characterization of this enzyme in the sea bass as a part of a project aimed at understanding sex steroid-regulated processes in the brain-gonadal axis, including steroid feedback and sex differentiation.
