Final Report: "The funding was used analyze the results of an experiment that served as the basis for Pao Vue’s Masters Thesis, The effects of 17β estradiol on skeletal growth and metamorphosis of the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis). More details can be found in his thesis, but in summary, two significant results were obtained. In the modified treatment protocol funded by this GIAR, 17b estradiol increased the rate of ossification as it had in our preliminary experiment (Bauer-Dantoin and Meinhardt, 2010). However, while the preliminary results suggested that 17b estradiol treatment accelerated overall development, the results of the more recent study indicate that 17b estradiol treatment delays development, a result more consistent with other labs’ work."
