While the role of eicosanoids in reproduction in vertebrate species has been well established, the role of these fatty acid derivatives in invertebrate species has not been as well characterized. The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in prostaglandins E2 and F2α during vitellogenesis in the crayfish Procambarus paeninsulanus. In homogenates of crayfish ovaries taken at various stages of development, the rate of prostaglandin synthesis and the concentrations of prostaglandins E2… CONTINUE READING
