The innervation of the endocrine optic gland of Sepia, which controls sexual maturation, was studied by immunocytochemistry. Anti-FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2) serum revealed immunoreactive neurons in the olfactory and basal-dorsal lobe of the supra-esophageal brain mass. The axons of these neurons form a network from which fibers run to the optic gland.(More)
CD98 heavy chain (CD98hc) is a multifunctional transmembrane spanning scaffolding protein whose extracellular domain binds with light chain amino acid transporters (Lats) to form the heterodimeric amino acid transporters (HATs). It also interacts with β1 and β3 integrins by its transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains. This interaction is proposed to be the(More)
The aim of the present study was to quantify the promoter II- and I.r-derived transcripts of p450 aromatase gene during follicular stages and during corpus luteum formation in the rabbit. An ovulatory dose of hCG induced, first the disappearance of 90% of aromatase transcripts since 6 h before ovulation, and second a gradual decrease during pseudopregnancy.(More)
The origin of ovarian renin and its regulation by hCG were investigated in rabbit periovulatory follicles and cultured preovulatory follicular cells. Intracellular content of renin in thecal cells was 8-fold greater than of granulosa cells. In vivo, administration of hCG increased intracellular content of renin in thecal but not granulosa cells.
