A comparative study was made of the isolation of the cortex in the eggs of several sea urchin species. Since the isolation method developed by Sakai depends on the presence of magnesium in the medium, the protein composition of the cortex was investigated to determine whether the protein component of the egg described by Kane and Hersh which is gelled by divalent ions, is present in these cortices. Isolation of the cortex was found to require the same divalent ions at the same concentrations as… CONTINUE READING
