Sex differentiation and sex change in the protandrous black porgy, Acanthopagrus schlegeli.
Protandrous black porgy fish, Acanthopagrus schlegeli, have a striking life cycle with a male sex differentiation at the juvenile stage and male-to-female sex change at 3 years of age. We hadExpand

Differential expression and regulation of gonadotropins and their receptors in the Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica.
Eel species have a striking life cycle with a blockade of puberty until the oceanic migration. We report the first molecular data on eel gonadotropin receptors. The partial sequences cloned coveredExpand

Hormones and reproduction in scleractinian corals.
Most broadcast spawning scleractinian corals synchronously release gametes during a brief annual spawning period. In southern Taiwan, the mass spawning of scleractinians occurs in lunar mid-March.Expand

Differential Messenger RNA Transcription of Androgen Receptor and Estrogen Receptor in Gonad in Relation to the Sex Change in Protandrous Black Porgy, Acanthopagrus schlegeli1
Abstract Black porgy, Acanthopagrus schlegeli Bleeker, is a marine protandrous hermaphrodite fish. All are functional males at 1–2 yr of age and then become either males or females at 3 yr of age. ToExpand

Yolk formation in a stony coral Euphyllia ancora (Cnidaria, Anthozoa): insight into the evolution of vitellogenesis in nonbilaterian animals.
Vitellogenin (Vg) is a major yolk protein precursor in numerous oviparous animals. Numerous studies in bilateral oviparous animals have shown that Vg sequences are conserved across taxa and that VgsExpand

Estradiol-17β Triggers Luteinizing Hormone Release in the Protandrous Black Porgy (Acanthopagrus schlegeli Bleeker) Through Multiple Interactions with Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Control1
Abstract We investigated the mechanism of estradiol-17β (E2) action on stimulation of LH (=gonadotropin II) release in the black porgy fish (Acanthopagrus schlegeli Bleeker) using an in vivo approachExpand

Seasonal Profiles of Brain and Pituitary Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone and Plasma Luteinizing Hormone in Relation to Sex Change of Protandrous Black Porgy, Acanthopagrus schlegeli1
Abstract Three molecular variants of GnRH in the brain (sbGnRH, sGnRH, and cGnRH-II) and two forms in the pituitary (sbGnRH and sGnRH) were detected in protandrous black porgy, AcanthopagrusExpand
