In this article, we present evidence for progesterone and estradiol receptors (PR and ER, respectively) in the female of the crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes. To our knowledge, this is the first report of sex steroid receptors in crustaceans. By using immunohistochemistry and Western blotting approaches and employing three different antibodies against PR (human PR, chicken PR-hinge region, and chicken PR A/B domain) and antibodies against human ER, we showed the presence of PR in the ovary… CONTINUE READING
