Fig. 5. Gonadosomatic index (GSI), hemolymph vitellogenin titers, and relative vitellogenin mRNA levels in the hepatopancreas of Macrobrachium rosenbergii females at different stages of the reproductive molt cycle. (A) GSI of intact animals, (B) vitellogenin titers and vitellogenin mRNA levels of intact females, (C) GSI of eyestalk-ablated females, and (D) vitellogenin titers and vitellogenin mRNA levels of eyestalk-ablated females. Values represent the mean ± SEM of five animals.
