- Steroid-induced oocyte maturation in Atlantic croaker (Micropogonias undulatus) is dependent on activation of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt signal transduction pathwayMargaret C Pace
The University of Texas at Austin Marine Science Institute, Port Aransas, Texas 78373, USA
Biol Reprod 73:988-96. 2005..These results demonstrate that activation of cAMP-independent signaling pathways, especially the Pik3/Akt pathway, is necessary for 20beta-S-induced GVBD in Atlantic croaker oocytes...
- Activation of a pertussis toxin-sensitive, inhibitory G-protein is necessary for steroid-mediated oocyte maturation in spotted seatroutMargaret C Pace
The University of Texas at Austin Marine Science Institute, 750 Channel View Drive, Port Aransas, TX 78373, USA
Dev Biol 285:70-9. 2005..These results support a mechanism of MIS action involving binding to a novel, G-protein coupled receptor and activation of an inhibitory G-protein, the most comprehensive and plausible model of MIS initiation of OM proposed to date...
