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.
