Maturation-inducing steroid in amago salmon (Oncorhynchus rhodurus) has been identified from media in which immature but fully grown folliculated oocytes of amago salmon had been incubated for 18-24 hr with chum salmon gonadotropin (SGA). The maturation-inducing (MI) activity of residues at various steps of purification was assessed by an in vitro germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) assay based on fully grown prophase-arrested folliculated oocytes of amago salmon. Ether extracts of the media from… CONTINUE READING
