A protein methyltransferase which recognizes racemized and isomerized aspartyl residues in proteins has been identified in both the cytoplasm and nucleus of Xenopus laevis oocytes by enzymatic and immunochemical assays. The methyltransferase activity is maintained at a constant concentration of approximately 0.2 microM throughout vitellogenesis. Two forms… CONTINUE READING
