Tissue distribution and elimination of radiolabelled methyltestosterone fed to adult blue tilapia

Abstract:

Radioactivity levels in 10 tissues were monitored for 21 days after adult (1-year-old) blue tilapia, Oreochromis aureus, were fed a single meal of a diet containing 30 μg unlabelled methyltestosterone (MT) per gram of feed and radiolabelled MT (3H-labelled steroid nucleus and 14C-labelled 17α-methyl group). Radioactivity was highest in all tissues 6-12 h after the feeding; about 90% of the radioactivity was in the digestive tract, liver, gall bladder, and kidney. Radioactivity declined nearly...
