Oocyte hydration in the Japanese eel (Anguilla japonica) during meiosis resumption and ovulation.


In this study, to elucidate the mechanisms of oocyte hydration in the Japanese eel (Anguilla japonica), we examined the in vivo and in vitro morphological changes and hydration process occurring during oocyte maturation and ovulation. We also investigated the effects of the presence of ovarian follicles, aquaporin water permeability (HgCl(2)), and yolk… (More)
