Fig. 15. Molecular phylogenetic tree between ovarian LDLR of Marsupenaeus japonicus and those of other species. A molecular phylogenetic tree of VgR and/or ovarian LDLR was constructed using the Tree View program (version 1.6.6; Division of Environmental and Evolutional Biology, Institute of Biomedical and Life Science, University of Glasgow). The scale bar shows 1.0 amino acid substitutions per site.

(Note: throughout the main text and figure captions, scientific names are abbreviated with the first two letters, or where further specification is necessary, with the first three letters of the genus name. However, in this figure, for purposes of simplicity, all scientific names are indicated with the first letter of the genus name.)
