Vitellogenesis in the red crab Charybdis feriatus: Hepatopancreas-specific expression and farnesoic acid stimulation of vitellogenin gene expression.


Vitellogenesis in the mature female crab Charybdis feriatus occurs all year round during which active synthesis of the vitellogenin (Vg) precursor occurs. Several polypeptides from the ovaries were shown to be immuno-reactive to the shrimp vitellin (Vn) antibody. N-terminal amino acid sequence determination revealed that several ovarian polypeptides and one… (More)
