author keywords: gap junction; gonadotropin; insulin-like growth factor; maturation inducing steroid; meiosis; oocyte development; phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase; signal transduction; Wortmannin; LY 294002
MeSH headings : Androstadienes / pharmacology; Animals; Bass / physiology; Chorionic Gonadotropin / pharmacology; Chromones / pharmacology; Enzyme Inhibitors / pharmacology; Female; Gap Junctions / drug effects; Humans; Insulin-Like Growth Factor I / pharmacology; Morpholines / pharmacology; Oocytes / cytology; Oocytes / drug effects; Oocytes / enzymology; Oocytes / growth & development; Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinases / metabolism; Phosphoinositide-3 Kinase Inhibitors; Wortmannin
TL;DR: It is shown that 20beta-S-induced GVBD is also attenuated by 1 mM 1-heptanol or 1-octanol without being affected by incubation with 3 mM ethanol, which suggests that PI 3-K activity is required for GtH- MIS- and IGF-I induction of GV BD in striped bass. (via Semantic Scholar)

Annual cycle of plasma lipids in captive reared striped bass: effects of environmental conditions and reproductive cycle

FISH PHYSIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 22(3), 263–275.

By: E. Lund*, C. Sullivan n & A. Place*

author keywords: essential fatty acids; reproduction; vitellogenin; wax esters
TL;DR: Analysis of lipid class composition revealed that the decrease in plasma lipid concentrations in females prior to spawning is primarily due to a decrease of up to 50% in the phospholipid content of the plasma relative to males, which suggests that these abundant lipids in mature eggs are synthesized within the oocytes.
