This article reviews the current state of understanding of reproductive pheromones in amphibians, focusing mainly on the purification and characterization of peptide pheromones in newts of the genus Cynops, molecular cloning of cDNAs encoding the pheromone molecules, and hormonal control of secretion of these pheromones. Pheromones that attract sexually(More)
A partial cDNA encoding for the C-terminus of vitellogenin (VTG) was cloned from liver of Sparus aurata male treated with 17beta-estradiol (E(2)). E(2) treatment of S. aurata males resulted in increased synthesis and secretion of VTG protein into the plasma, determined by a specific enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in a time-dependent manner.
