Ovarian follicles were collected from the perch belonging to the vitellogenic stage and incubated in vitro for 4 h in the absence (control) or presence of triiodothyronine (T3). Addition of T3 (40 ng/ml) to the follicle incubation caused a two-fold increase of [3H] pregnenolone conversion to radiolabelled progesterone (P4) as compared to the control. The… CONTINUE READING
