Hereditary hypotrophic axonopathy with neurofilament deficiency in a mutant strain of the Japanese quail
SummaryA primary axonal disease affecting the central and peripheral nervous system was discovered in a new mutant strain of the Japanese quail, named quiver (Quv). Quv showed significantly smaller… Expand

This mutant presents direct evidence for the importance of NFs in achieving and/or maintaining normal axon caliber and provides a novel system for further studies on NF expression, metabolism and function. Expand
The hypotrophic axonopathy mutant in Japanese quail.
A new behavioral mutant showing either head or body quivering, or both, was found in Japanese quail, and it was shown to be controlled by an autosomal recessive gene, for which the gene symbol hax was proposed. Expand
Selective Degradation of Specific Components of Fertilization Coat and Differentiation of Hatching Gland Cells during the Two Phase Hatching of Bufo japonicus Embryos
Results indicate that the hydrolytic degradation of 58K and 62 K components in FCs effected by the hatching enzyme constitutes the basic mechanism of embryonic hatching during both the first and second phases. Expand

Electrophoretic analysis of envelopes showed that two glycoprotein components with apparent molecular weights were hydrolyzed during fertilization to 62,000 and 58,000, respectively, and these two envelope components were structurally related as shown by peptide mapping and deglycosylation studies.

Classification, inhibition, and specificity studies of the vitelline coat lysin from toad sperm.
The protease studied here represents the VC lysin of toad sperm that is involved in fertilization by digesting the VC of uterine eggs, probably released as a result of the acrosome reaction induced by PRG. Expand
Experiments Pertaining to the Suppression of Accessory Sperm in Fertilized Newt Eggs *
Cytological examinations in association with these experiments suggest that the observed suppression of accessory sperm includes the inhibition of centriolar replication under the influence of the zygote nucleus, resulting in the failure of cytasters corporating with nuclear‐independent activity of cortical cytoplasm.
