[Full Text]

FSH, LH, Androgen, Estrogen



The existing study investigated the gonadal hormone alternation of Zebrafish brought on by means of sublethal concentration of Azoxystrobin (5ppm and 15ppm). Due to sublethal doses Azoxystrobin exposure leads to endocrine disruption in zebrafish in connection with hormonal reproductive tissues. FSH, LH and testosterone hormone levels were notably reduced (P<0.001) in the treated fish in assessment with manipulate with azoxystrobin attention increased. Reduction within the gonodosomatic index was once evident inside the extend of sublethal dose of Azoxystrobin absorbed their sensitivity to zebrafish intercourse hormone like effects.
