Purification of gonadotropin II from a teleost fish, the hybrid striped bass, and development of a specific enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
A highly purified gonadotropin II (GtH II), referred to as striped bass GtH II (stbGtH II), and its alpha and beta subunits were prepared from pituitaries of sexually mature hybrid striped bass.Expand

Pituitary levels of three forms of GnRH in the male European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax, L.) during sex differentiation and first spawning season.
In the present study, levels of three GnRH forms [seabream GnRH (sbGnRH), chicken GnRH-II (cGnRH-II), and salmon GnRH (sGnRH)] were analyzed in the pituitary of male sea bass during sexExpand

A rapid and sensitive ELISA for rainbow trout maturational gonadotropin (tGtH II): validation on biological samples; in vivo and in vitro responses to GnRH.
A rapid and sensitive heterologous enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed to measure rainbow trout maturational gonadotropin. Purified salmon maturational gonadotropin (sGtH II) wasExpand

Early Maturity in the Male Striped Bass, Morone saxatilis: Follicle-Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone Gene Expression and Their Regulation by Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Analogue and
Abstract Striped bass are seasonal breeding fish, spawning once a year during the spring. All 3-yr-old males are sexually mature; however, 60–64% of the fish mature earlier as 1- or 2-yr-old animals.Expand

Endocrine profiles of female striped bass (Morone saxatilis) in captivity, during postvitellogenesis and induction of final oocyte maturation via controlled-release GnRHa-delivery systems.
Plasma levels of reproductive and thyroid hormones were measured in captive striped bass females during postvitellogenesis and the spawning period (March-June). Circulating gonadotropin II (GtH II),Expand

Plasma gonadotropin II, sex steroids, and thyroid hormones in wild striped bass (Morone saxatilis) during spermiation and final oocyte maturation.
The blood levels of gonadotropin II (GtH II), sex-steroid hormones, and thyroid hormones were determined in wild spermiating male striped bass (Morone saxatilis) in males and in females at variousExpand

GnRHa-mediated stimulation of the reproductive endocrine axis in captive Atlantic bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus.
A controlled-release implant loaded with GnRH agonist (GnRHa) was used to induce spawning in Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) during two consecutive reproductive seasons. The fish wereExpand
