Characterization of regions of the Caenorhabditis elegans X chromosome containing vitellogenin genes.

Abstract

Caenorhabditis elegans contains a family of vitellogenin genes consisting of five closely related genes (vit-1 to vit-5) coding for 186,000 Mr yolk proteins, and one distantly related gene (vit-6) encoding a 200,000 Mr precursor to two smaller yolk proteins. We demonstrate here that, although vit-1 to vit-5 are not clustered (with the exception of vit-3 and… (More)
