We used antibodies against octopus gonadotropin-releasing hormone (octGnRH) and tunicate GnRH (tGnRH-I) in order to investigate the existence and distribution of GnRH-like peptides in the central nervous system (CNS) and in the ovary during various stages of the ovarian cycle of the white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei. OctGnRH-immunoreactive and tGnRH-I-immunoreactive neurons and fibers were present in several regions of the supraesophageal ganglion (brain), subesophageal ganglion (SEG… CONTINUE READING
