Identification of the carboxyl termini of porcine zona pellucida glycoproteins ZPB and ZPC.

Abstract

The extracellular matrix surrounding mammalian oocytes plays important roles in fertilization and is known as the zona pellucida (ZP). The ZP consists of three glycoproteins, ZPA, ZPB, and ZPC, which contain homologous regions known as ZP domains. The ZP domain is also found in many other secretory glycoproteins. Putative transmembrane domains present at… (More)
