In the present study, we examined the role of leucine-enkephalin on moulting and vitellogenesis of the fresh water rice field crab, Oziotelphusa senex senex. Administration of leucine-enkephalin induced moulting and also stimulated ovarian growth and vitellogenesis. These results provide the first evidence that an opioid system is involved in the control of regulation of growth and reproduction in a crustacean. Au cours de cette étude, nous avons examiné le rôle de la leucine-enképhaline sur la mue et la vitellogénèse du crabe de rizière Oziotelphusa senex senex. L'administration de leucine-enképhaline a induit la mue et également stimulé la croissance ovarienne et la vitellogénèse. Ces résultats apportent pour la première fois l'évidence qu'un système opioïde est impliqué dans le contrôle de la régulation de la croissance et de la reproduction chez un crustacé.
