Abstract
    Environmental effects of environmental disruptors on fish have been shown. Here, we assess the estrogenic effects of 1 and 10 µg/l nonylphenol (NP) on vitellogenin (VG) and zona radiata protein (Zrp) expression in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) after a 12 months exposure. Trout eggs, larvae and juvenile stages were exposed in a flow-through system. VG mRNA, VG and ZrP protein were quantified by competitive RT-PCR and western blots, respectively. An increased VG protein concentration was detected at 1 µg/l NP, VG mRNA and Zrp content were significantly increased at 10 µg/l NP. This study shows that NP concentrations found in sewage in Switzerland and England induce estrogenic effects in trout, which indicates the LOEC to be set at 1 µg/l NP.
