Figure 5

Immunofluorescence expression of vitellin in ovary. (a) Control prawn ovary showed maximum immunostaining expression of vitellin (Vt). (b) Reduction of vitellin ( ) as evident with less intensity of immunostaining at 10 ng/L exposure. (c) Less expression of vitellin ( ) as well as fusion of vitellin content as indicated with moderate immunostaining at 100 ng/L exposure. (d) At 1000 ng/L TBT, treated ovary showing absence of the vitellin. Note the reduction in the intensity of the vitellin in the ovary of treated prawns. Bar: 50 μm.
