r2 in Follicular Cells Right after localizing Amh and Amhr2 within the follicular cells, alterations of amh and amhr2 expression were determined by RT-qPCR in follicular cells isolated from sea bass ovaries at diverse stages of maturation (Figure 6). The levels of amh mRNA were low from May possibly to September through previtellogenesis, then considerably elevated in November, when vitellogenesis started and decreased once more during post-vitellogenesis (postvtg) to reach low levels in March, for the duration of the spawning period (matur) (Figure 6A). There were no substantial modifications in amhr2 expression at any time for the duration of the reproductive cycle, despite the fact that the expression pattern was the inverse of that of the amh. The highest expression levels occurred in the course of previtellogenesis and dropped when vitellogenesis started (Figure 6B). two.five.
