A cDNA clone encoding most of an Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) estrogen receptor (ER) was obtained from a liver cDNA library and the remainder of the coding sequence from the gene was isolated from a genomic library. Sequence comparisons showed that the cloned gene represents ER-α. Expression of the ER-α gene in male and female salmon parr was analysed by RT-PCR. Highest expression was found in brain and liver, with lower levels of ER-α mRNA present in all other tissues tested. There was little difference in expression of ER-α between male and female.
