The four yolk polypeptides of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans are found in two types of lipoprotein particle: 12 S particles with Mr estimated at 450,000 and 8 S particles with Mr estimated at 250,000. Both types of particle contain approximately 8% phospholipids, 3% triglycerides, and 3% other lipids by mass. All four C. elegans yolk polypeptides can be found in either 12 or 8 S particles, depending upon the conditions of isolation. While the properties of the 12 and 8 S lipoprotein… CONTINUE READING
