In synthesis in Podarcis during the mating period the great amount of spcI expressing the three receptors may be likely due to the high frequency in the succession of spermatogenic waves in this period.
Therefore in Podarcis, while the timing of the reproductive cycle is given by the seasonal changes as it is known, the speed and frequency of the spermatogenic waves in the mating period or in the autumnal recrudescence may be set by the amount of spcI expressing AR, ER[alpha], and ER[beta]-mRNA.
