Fig. 16. Changes in ovarian LDLR mRNA expression of Marsupenaeus japonicus. Lane 1: previtellogenic stage. Lane 2: endogenous vitellogenic stage. Lane 3: early exogenous stage. Lane 4: late exogenous stage. Lane 5: maturation stage. Values represent the mean ± SEM (n = 5). Variance was statistically evaluated by analysis of variance (ANOVA) with SPSS software (release 6.1; SPSS Japan Inc., Tokyo, Japan). One-way ANOVA was used to determine significance. Individual differences between groups were assessed using Duncan's multiple range test. Significant differences (P < 0.05) are indicated by differing letters.
