Identification and characterization of methyl farnesoate binding proteins from the crab, Cancer magister.


Methyl farnesoate (MF) binding proteins were identified in the hemolymph of male crabs, Cancer magister, using a tritium-labeled photoaffinity analog of MF, farnesyl diazomethyl ketone (FDK). Crab hemolymph was incubated with [3H]FDK in the presence of increasing amounts of unlabeled MF and the proteins were separated using SDS-PAGE. The associated… (More)
