Previous studies in the placental viviparous bonnethead shark, Sphyrna tiburo, have correlated 17 beta-estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, and dihydrotestosterone with reproductive events in both males and females. However, several key reproductive events, including implantation, maintenance of pregnancy, and parturition, did not correlate with these four steroid hormones. Therefore, the present study investigated three steroid hormones, 11-ketotestosterone, 11-ketoandrostenedione, and… CONTINUE READING
