Abstract In an earlier study it was reported that oxytocin was able to block the antimetamorphic action of prolactin (PRL) in larval tiger salamanders, Ambystoma tigrinum ( Platt and LiCause, 1980 ). In this study, we have examined the effects of lysine vasopressin (LVP), arginine vasotocin (AVT), and aldosterone on induced metamorphosis in larval A. tigrinum and on the inhibition of this process by PRL. Both LVP and AVT were found to interfere with the inhibition of gill resorption, tail fin… CONTINUE READING
