The in vitro effects of forskolin, IBMX and cyanoketone on meiotic maturation in follicle-enclosed catfish (Clarias batrachus) oocytes.


The effects of an adenylate cyclase activator (forskolin, FK), phosphodiesterase inhibitor (3-isobutyl-l-methyl-xanthine, IBMX) and an inhibitor of steroidogenesis (cyanoketone, CK) on germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) in the catfish (Clarias batrachus) were investigated in vitro. In most of the experiments GVBD was induced by using 1 microgram/ml 17 alpha… (More)
