Abstract

1. 1. The role of the fat body in the autumn recrudescence of the ovary was investigated in Rana esculenta. 2. 2. Changes in the wet organ weight, total protein, lipid and DNA, protein/DNA ratio and profile of RNA synthesis were analyzed for the liver, fat body and ovary in freshly captured frogs, intact frogs in captivity, those without fat bodies and those without fat bodies but fat body homogenate treated. 3. 3. Fat body removal impairs the ovarian growth. 4. 4. Lipids, protein and water appear to be involved in the ovarian recrudescence. © 1983.
