When ovarian pieces of the scallop, Patinopecten yessoensis, were incubated in media containing serotonin (5-HT), the number of released eggs increased significantly. These eggs developed normally after fertilization. The threshold of the 5-HT effect reached a maximum at a concentration of 10(-6) M, and decreased sharply with increasing concentrations… CONTINUE READING
