To determine whether fish have an insulin-like growth factor II/mannose 6-phosphate (IGF-II/M6-P) receptor similar to that of mammals, we have performed binding, cross-linking, and immunoprecipitation experiments with wheat-germ-agglutinin- and mannose 6-phosphate (M6-P)-affinity-purified receptor preparations from fish embryos. In both receptor(More)
INTRODUCTION Insulin and insulin-like growth factors I and II (IGF-I and IGF-II) are peptides that belong to the same family of proteins. Insulin , IGF-I and IGF-II are structurally similar and have derived from a common ancestral molecule through a series of gene duplications and point mutations. The ami-no acid sequences of insulin, IGF-I and IGF-II from(More)

In the fish ovary, LH is the main factor regulating the production of steroids during the periovulatory period and its effects are believed to be mediated, at least partially, through the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) signaling pathway. However, there is no direct evidence for the presence of PKA in the fish ovary nor on the regulation of its activity(More)
In the salmonid ovary, luteinizing hormone (LH) is the major gonadotropic hormone stimulating the production of steroids during the periovulatory period and its effects are mediated by the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) signaling pathway. We have previously shown that the in vitro steroidogenic activity of LH in the salmonid ovary is inhibited by(More)
