Yolk protein synthesis in the riceland tadpole shrimp, Triops longicaudatus, measured by in vitro incorporation of 3H-leucine.


Investigation of reproductive control within the tadpole shrimp, Triops longicaudatus, required the isolation and characterization of the yolk protein (vitellin, Vn). To this end, tadpole shrimp were cultured in environmental chambers (29 degrees C-22 degrees C, with 14:10 light:dark cycle). Desiccated cysts hatched in 2-3 days after inundation. The tadpole… (More)
