Degradation of M(r) 25,000 protein by cathepsin L-like protease in Xenopus laevis oocytes.


A phosphorylated protein with a molecular mass of 25,000 (pp25) is involved in Xenopus laevis vitellogenin B1 and partially overlaps with phosvitin and lipovitellin 2. The protease responsible for pp25 degradation was studied in vitro since this occurs during embryogenesis. Initially, a protease thought to be a contaminant of the purified pp25 preparation… (More)
