Abstract In the adult male migratory grasshopper, Melanoplus sanguinipes , the major secretory product of the long hyaline gland (a distinct tubule type of the accessory reproductive gland complex) is an abundant glycoprotein (LHPI) with a native molecular weight of about 72,000 Da. Sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) of this protein gives rise to a 36,000 Da subunit. Partial peptide mapping of the 36,000 Da subunit, using the agents N- chlorosuccinimide… CONTINUE READING
