This book presents a comprehensive overview on egg production in fish, from the standpoint of the oocyte. It covers oocyte development, maturation, hydration and fertilization. The book places special emphasis on using state-of-the-art tools for discerning the ultra-structure of the follicle and genomic/proteomic tools to fully understand biological basis of fish reproduction.
Ultrastructural aspects of the ontogeny and differentiation of ray-finned fish ovarian follicles.- Molecular aspects of oocyte vitellogenesis in fish.- Zebrafish ovarian follicle transcriptome.- Proteomics analysis of the developing fish oocyte.- Oocyte zona pellucida proteins.- Maternal factors in fish oogenesis and embryonic development.- Gonadotropic regulation of oocyte development.- Sex steroid hormone receptors in fish ovaries.- Hormonal regulation of follicular atresia in teleost fish.- Ecotoxicological effects of endocrine disrupting compounds on fish reproduction.- Regulatory mechanisms of oocyte maturation and ovulation.- Physiological and molecular basis of fish oocyte hydration.- Fertilization and egg activation in fishes.- Low-temperature preservation of fish gonad cells and oocytes.- Promoting oocyte maturation, ovulation and spawning in farmed fish.
