Mohamed, K S and Diwan, A D (1994) Vitellogenesis in the Indian white prawn Penaeus indicus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Penaeidae). Journal of Aquaculture in Tropics, 9 . pp. 157-172.
The process of vitellogenesis in Penaeus indicus has been investigated using histological, histochemical, and electron microscopic methods. Based on the changes evident in the cytoplasm and nucleus, five vitellogenic phases are recognized. Histochemical studies revealed the yolk to be a glycolipoProtein complex, with proteins being the first to be associated with the yolk complex, followed by carbohydrates and finally lipids. Yolk formation apparently takes place by the selective deposition and sequestration of organic material from within (autosynthesis) and without (heterosynthesis).
