Yolk protein differences between species ofDrosophila

1–3 major proteins considered as vitellins or yolk proteins are detected in mature eggs from differentDrosophila species by gel electrophoresis on gradient slab gels. Qualitative and quantiative differences are found even between closely related species. In heteroplastic transplantations, no correlation was found between the similarity or dissimilarity of the protein pattern on the one hand, and success of failure of egg development and vitellogenesis on the other hand.
