Development of immunoassays for striped bass gonadotropins

Principal Investigator: 

Yonathan Zohar

Start/End Year: 

1994 to 1997

Institution: 

Center of Marine Biotechnology, University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute

Co-Principal investigator: 

Rosemary Jagus, Center for Marine Biotechnology, University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute

Topic(s): 

Description: 

To develop radioimmunoassays (RIAS) for the measurement of the striped and white bass major reproductive hormones, the gonadotropins (GtH-I&II). To enable monitoring GtH levels in striped and white bass broodfish exposed to environmental or hormonal manipulations. To use a novel recombinant DNA approach for expressing immunoactive GtHs and for developing RIAs for fish gonadotropins.
