Differential vitellin polypeptide processing in insect embryos
Abstract This review focuses on the current status of knowledge regarding the process of vitellogenin (Vg) uptake and vitellin (Vt) storage in insect oocytes. We also consider the overall morphologyExpand

Seasonal levels of serum vitellogenin and oocyte growth in the channel catfish Ictalurus punctatus.
Abstract Seasonal levels of serum vitellogenin (VG) were measured in adult and juvenile (10–30 months old) female channel catfish using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). In adults sampledExpand

Ovarian follicle development during vitellogenesis in the house cricket Acheta domesticus
To determine the morphological correlates of vitellogenin uptake and distribution, vitellogenic ovarian follicles of Acheta domesticus were examined by light and transmission electron microscopy.Expand

Vitellogenin induction by estradiol in channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus.
In oviparous vertebrates estrogens induce hepatic synthesis of vitellogenin (VG), a blood protein sequestered in vitellogenic oocytes and from which lipovitellin (LV) and phosvitin are derived. OurExpand

Yolk proteins in developing follicles of the house cricket, Acheta domesticus (L.)
The occurence of the two major yolk proteins in vitellogenic follicles at various stages of development in the house cricket, Acheta domesticus, was studied electrophoretically. Follicles were stagedExpand

Yolk proteins in the house cricket, Acheta domesticus: Identification, characterization, and effect of ovariectomy upon their synthesis
Four female-specific yolk proteins were identified in the hemolymph of adult, ovulating Acheta domesticus through the use of SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Molecular weights were estimatedExpand
