Determination of content of vitellogenin receptor (VTGR) : VTGR content was measured according to the method of George (1987).
Effects of dihydropyridine on VTGR content of developing oocyte membrane are presented in Table 4; 150 and 300 mg/kg of dihydropyridine supplement increased VTGR content in vitelline membrane of laying hens by 24.
This experiment showed that dihydropyridine supplementation tends to increase the content of VTGR in the vitelline membrane of laying hens, which may be the mechanism by which dihydropyridine improved the egg laying rate and egg weight.
