Immunocytochemical distribution and dynamics of vasotocin (VT) were studied in the air-breathing catfish Heteropneustes fossilis in relation to the reproductive cycle. Vasotocin was localized in the brain and ovary by streptavidin-biotin immunocytochemistry. The immunoreactivity was found throughout the hypothalamo-hypophysial neurosecretory system consisting of the magnocellular and parvocellular neurons of the nucleus preopticus, neurosecretory axonal tract and neurohypophysis (NH). The VT… CONTINUE READING
