Table 1 Growth of European sea bass juveniles at 170 days post hatch according to treatment and cyp19a1a expression levels by qPCR

From: Estrogen exposure overrides the masculinizing effect of elevated temperature by a downregulation of the key genes implicated in sexual differentiation in a fish with mixed genetic and environmental sex determination

  1. One- way ANOVAs for length and weight comparing low cyp19a1a expressors for the four treated groups as well as for the high cyp19a1a expressors. Results are shown as mean ± SEM. Different letters indicate statistical differences (P < 0.05) between groups
