Male smooth flounder (Pleuronectes putnami) were induced to produce vitellogenin (VTG) by injection of 17beta-estradiol (E2). Anion exchange chromatography of precipitated plasma from E2-injected resulted in a single peak consisting of VTG. Smooth flounder VTG has an approximate molecular mass of approximately 520 kDa, determined by gel filtration with(More)
