Receptors for two salmon gonadotropins, GTH I and GTH II, were localized by use of in vitro ligand autoradiography of coho salmon gonads at various stages of sexual maturation. The results in both sexes revealed the presence of two types of GTH receptors: type I (GTH-RI), which interacts with both GTHs, and type II (GTH-RII), which interacts specifically with GTH II. GTH-RI was found at all stages of spermatogenesis examined and was localized on cells that were most likely Sertoli cells… CONTINUE READING
