The activity of a protein kinase specific to ribosomal protein S6 was determined in early loach embryos in basal conditions and after their treatment with epidermal growth factor (EGF). The cytosol of loach blastoderms isolated at the early gastrula stage possessed a high level of protein kinase activity catalysing incorporation of 0. 33 pmol.min-1.mg-1 of Pi into exogenous S6 protein of rat liver ribosomal 40S subunit. The treatment of embryos for 30 min with EGF (10 ng/ml) added to the… CONTINUE READING
