Vitellogenins (Vg) are precursors of egg-yolk proteins (vitellins) constituting energy reserves for embryos. In oviparous females, Vg are produced in the liver (or equivalent organs) under the control of endogenous estrogens, released into the bloodstream (plasma or hemolymph), and stored in developing oocytes.
