Seasonal variations in serum concentrations of 17beta-estradiol (E(2)), vitellogenin (Vg), testosterone (T), 11 ketotestosterone (11-KT), and thyroid hormones (T(4), l-thyroxine; and T(3), 3,5, 3'-triiodo-l-thyronine) were investigated during the first, second, and third reproductive cycles in intensively reared populations of common dentex, Dentex dentex, and correlated with gonadal development and spawning. In females, there were baseline E(2) values (<0.10 ng/ml) and negligible Vg… CONTINUE READING
