Prolactin and growth hormone levels in the pouch fluid of gravid male seahorse, Hipocampus barbouri Jordan and Richardson 1908



Prolactin and growth hormone levels in the pouch fluid of gravid male seahorse, Hipocampus barbouri Jordan and Richardson 1908



Asia Life Sciences 17(2): 261-269



Prolactin and growth hormone levels in the pouch tissues and pouch fluid at different stages of gestation of male seahorse, Hippocampus barbouri Jordan and Richardson 1908, were determined by immunohistochemistry and radio immunoassay (RIA). Immunohistochemistry demonstrated the presence of these two hormones whereas the more sensitive radio immunoassay detected prolactin only in the early and late gestation stages and growth hormone in all stages. Prolactin clearance in the pouch fluid during the mid-stage of gestation may be due to prolactin binding to osmoregulatory receptors in the pouch tissues to prevent the hyposmoregulatory activity of growth hormone.
