Abstract

Adult Mytilus edulis were exposed to environmentally relevant
concentrations of 17β-estradiol in seawater for 10 days. Exposure was performed to assess effects on vitellogenin mRNA expression during early gametogenesis stages. The results show an increase in VTG expression, in contrast with previous experiments where no statistically significant change in the expression of VTG in ripe mussels was recorded.
