Embryos of the marine mud snail Ilyanassa obsoleta undergo early development within an egg capsule. After about a week of encapsulation, embryos hatch by releasing a chemical substance that removes the plug found at the apex of a capsule. However, the mechanism of action of this hatching substance remains poorly understood. To study how the hatching substance functions, we examined the composition of the egg capsule, particularly the plug region, to determine what the "substrate" of the… Expand
