Embryos of the giant freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, were treated with 1, 10 or 50 µg ml−1 all-trans retinoic acid (AtRA) for 2 days. Survival and hatching rates were not affected. However, an increase in the number of primordial germ cells (PGCs), progenitors of gametes, and a slightly more advanced stage of the gonads were found in those… CONTINUE READING
