The site of synthesis of molluscs lipoproteins is little known and was investigated for the egg lipoprotein perivitellin 1 (PV1) or ovorubin in the freshwater snail Pomacea canaliculata. Tissues (albumen gland, gonad–digestive gland complex and muscle) of vitellogenic females were incubated in vitro at 25°C for 12 h with 14C Leucine. After that, soluble proteins from tissue homogenates and medium samples were analysed for de novo protein synthesis by electrophoresis and HPLC, and radiolabelled… CONTINUE READING
