Prothoracicotropic hormone (PTTH) of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, was purified and its primary structure determined for the most part. From sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of the purified PTTH under non-reducing and reducing conditions, and the amino acid sequence and composition analyses of the carboxamidomethylated PTTH, we concluded that Bombyx PTTH has a dimeric structure consisting of two identical, or nearly identical subunits, held together by disulfide bond(s… CONTINUE READING
