Possible roles for prostaglandins E2 and F2 alpha in seasonal changes in ovarian steroidogenesis in the frog (Rana esculenta).

Abstract

Concentrations of PGE2, PGF2 alpha, androgens and oestradiol in plasma, and ovary weights were measured in the female frog, Rana esculenta, during the annual breeding cycle. Experiments were carried out in vivo to study the effects of PGE2 and PGF2 alpha on plasma sex steroids during the following stages: pre-reproduction (April), reproduction (May), post… (More)
