  • An aqueous extract of lophophore from Glottidia pyramidata induces oocyte maturation and follicle cell retraction in pieces of ovary and spawning in intact animals. The extract does not act directly on large oocytes but indirectly, through some other cell type in the ovary. The activity of the extract is insensitive to boiling or protease treatment and passes through a filter with a molecular weight cutoff of 2000. Bromoadenosine 3'5' cyclic monophosphate and dibutyryl 3'5' cyclic monophosphate… CONTINUE READING
