In the sea pansy Renilla koellikeri, estradiol-17beta (E(2)) levels exhibited an annual pattern of secretion that correlated with the reproductive cycle, and displayed sex-specific and tissue-specific differences. The E(2) levels were low during the non-reproductive period extending from autumn to winter. A first rise of E(2) concentrations occurred in March when gonad maturation resumed, as indicated by an increase in lipid storage. This suggests that E(2) may influence the beginning of gonad… CONTINUE READING
