AbstractPhytochemicals are widely present in the aquatic environment and they are derived from many anthropogenic activities. The isoflavone daidzein is a natural compound that is found in the soya products used as habitual constituents of aquafeeds. Nevertheless, this isoflavone possesses oestrogenic and apoptotic properties. The present study determined the effects of daidzein (at 20 mg/L) during the first month and a half of life (from 7 to 44 days post-hatching -dph-) of the flatfish Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis, focusing at the metamorphosis. We have analysed different gene expression levels and immunohistochemical protein patterns implicated in some oestrogenic, apoptotic and enzymatic pathways. In general, the oestrogen receptor (ERβ) and stimulating apoptosis death receptor factor (Fas) transcript levels showed similar baseline patterns and transcriptional responses induced by daidzein. Both ERβ and Fas were up-regulated by this isoflavone at the pre-metamorphosis and metamorphosis, and they were down-regulated in post-metamorphosed stages. The expression pattern of the apoptotic effector caspase (Casp6) was exclusively up-regulated at the premetamorphic phase. The Birc5 transcripts (i.e. antiapoptosis, Survivin) were down-regulated by daidzein during certain metamorphic and post-metamorphosed stages. Besides, daidzein showed an up-regulating effect on both enzymatic complexes, the haemoprotein CYP1A and the acetylcholinesterase (AChE), except for a temporary AChE down-regulation in some postmetamorphosed stages. Immunostaining analysis only showed increased CYP1A signals in the liver of daidzein exposed fish. Overall, a majority of the transcriptional oestrogenic and apoptotic imbalances could be gradually and/or temporarily stabilised. Most controls and exposed larvae (70-80%) developed and grew following normal ontogenetic developmental patterns.
