Juvenile salmonid pituitary gonadotropin (GTH) contents are elevated after steroid hormone treatment, but the involvement of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) is unclear. Activation of salmon GnRH (sGnRH) synthesis by 17 alpha-methyltestosterone (MT) administration has been examined in the brain of yearling masu salmon (future precocious males and… CONTINUE READING
