Polyclonal antibodies made against 86 kDa (86 k), 80 kDa (80 k) and 54 kDa (54 k) vitellins of Oxya japonica japonica are used for Western blotting. Anti‐80k vitellin antibody is cross‐reacted with a 95 kDa (95 k) vitellin. While 95 k vitellin is present both in the female hemolymph and in the oocyte, 80 k vitellin is detected only in the oocyte and the laid egg. In the growing oocytes, as 95 k vitellin is faded out gradually, 80 k vitellin is accumulated increasingly, indicating postendocytic…

cDNA cloning and induction of tyrosine hydroxylase gene from the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella.

The cloned a full-length tyrosine hydroxylase cDNA from the integument of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella, found that Ser(35) of PxTH is highly conserved across a broad phylogenetic range of animal taxa including rat and human.

Isolation and expression analysis of a homolog of the 14-3-3 epsilon gene in the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella.

A full-length 14-3-3 gene homolog was cloned from cDNA of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella and shows high identity to the Bombyx mori epsilon (96.2%).



Postendocytic vitellin processing in ovarian follicles of the stick insect Carausius morosus (Br.)

Ovarian follicles exposed in vivo to [35S]-methionine showed a causal relationship between polypeptide processing and progressive yolk sphere fusion to yield the central ooplasm, and autoradiographic analysis of ovarian follicles labelled this way showed that radioactivity was gradually transferred from newly formed yolk spheres in the cortical ooplasms to the central Ooplasm.

Yolk hydrolase activities associated with polypeptide and oligosaccharide processing of Blattella germanica vitellin

With this procedure, the specific activity profiles of exo-α-mannosidase, exp-β-N-acetylglucosaminidase and acid phosphatase were monitored during the first 6 days after ovulation, and some of their properties were also determined.

Mosquito vitellogenin receptor: purification, developmental and biochemical characterization.

Vitellogenin of the cockroach, Leucophaea maderae: nucleotide sequence, structure and analysis of processing in the fat body and oocytes.

Molecular characterization of the mosquito vitellogenin receptor reveals unexpected high homology to the Drosophila yolk protein receptor.

Two cDNA fragments encompassing the entire coding region of AaVgR mRNA are cloned and sequenced, to the authors' knowledge the first insect VgR sequence to be reported, and the deduced amino acid sequence predicts a 202.7-kDa protein before posttranslational processing.

Processing of procathepsin from Musca domestica eggs.

The Drosophila yolkless gene encodes a vitellogenin receptor belonging to the low density lipoprotein receptor superfamily.

The molecular characterization of the putative Drosophila melanogaster vitellogenin receptor gene, yolkless (yl), reveals that the protein it encodes (Yl), is also a member of the LDLR superfamily, which consists of apolipoproteins and lipoprotein lipases.

Immunolocalization of a proton V-ATPase in ovarian follicles of the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta

An important role for V-ATPase in vitellogenin uptake in Manduca is suggested, similar to that suggested on electro-physiological grounds in Hyalophora cecropia.
