    ..Also unexpectedly, searches with 11beta-HSD1 only identified several fish 11beta-HSD3s, as well as an ortholog in Ciona, indicating that 11beta-HSD3 is the ancestor of 11beta-HSD1. ..

    ..The closely related 11beta-HSD 2 is unlikely to substitute for 17beta-HSD 2 since in our hands it did not catalyze the respective oxidation of testosterone or estradiol. ..

    ..The extensive molecular, genetic, physiological, and behavioral toolbox now available for the zebrafish makes this species an attractive model for integrated analyses of chemical effects spanning behavior to molecular effect mechanisms. ..

    ..Overall, this study indicates that hypoxia, possibly via HIF-1-induced leptin expression, modulates sex steroid synthesis by acting directly on steroidogenic gene expression. ..

    ..Overall, the findings from this study indicate that HIF-1-mediated mechanisms are likely involved in the regulation of specific steroidogenic genes. ..
