The receptor-mediated uptake of major yolk protein precursor, vitellogenin (Vg) is crucial for oocyte growth in egg laying animals. In the present study plasma membrane receptor for Vg was isolated from the oocyte of the red mud crab, Scylla serrata. Vitellogenin receptor (VgR) protein was visualized by ligand blotting using labeled crab Vg ((125)I-Vg) as well as labeled low density lipoprotein ((125)I -LDL) and very low density lipoprotein ((125)I-VLDL) isolated from rat. The endocytosis of Vg… CONTINUE READING
