By incubation of explants of tail fin from tadpoles of Rana catesbeiana in a solution of 35S-methionine for 4 h, newly synthesized proteins were labeled isotopically. After separation by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, those proteins were visualized by fluorography. Exposure of explants to culture medium containing thyroxine (T4) (150 nM) increased the incorporation of 35S-methionine into several proteins with 48 h. Effects of T4 on the relative abundance of two of these… CONTINUE READING
