Prostaglandins and its Role in Aquatic Reproduction: A Review

Maysa Enayatmehr [4] | Shahla Jamili [3]

Abstract: Prostaglandins (PGs) are a group of biologically active compounds that play major roles in mammalian and non-mammalian physiology in both health and disease. They function in many different ways and in all major organs. This article reviews the basic physiology of prostaglandins in marine organism and major focus is their application in aquatic reproduction. Present study indicates prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) has been detected in reproductive organs, and may play a role in the control of ovarian maturation in teleost and crustacean. Moreover, we found that administration of PGE2 stimulated the ovarian maturation in these species by shortening the length of the ovarian cycle, increasing ovarian-somatic index.

Keywords: Prostaglandins, aquatic reproduction, maturation
