Progestin hormones are vital for inducing oocyte maturation in fish by binding to membrane progestin receptors (mPRs). The aim of this study was to examine the expression and regulation of mPRalpha and mPRbeta in zebrafish follicles. First, defolliculated fully grown oocytes were subjected to immunofluorescent staining using anti-mPRalpha and mPRbeta antibodies, and their expression on the oocyte membrane was confirmed. Second, total protein was collected from zebrafish follicles and Western… CONTINUE READING
