  1. Values represent Ct values (mean +/- SEM) from 3 biological replicates (50 embryos/larvae per pool, 3 pools per treatment group). For details, see Methods and Results. Asterisks (*) indicate significant difference between vehicle [dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), ethanol (EtOH)] and control (control = untreated; p < .05). Boldface indicates significant difference between treatment [17β-estradiol (E2), testosterone (T), ICI 182,780 (ICI), β-napthaflavone (BNF), tetrachlodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD)] and DMSO (p < .05).
