ThesisKasparian, ShaheFreeze-fracture electron microscopy was used to analyze the hydrophobic interior of the plasma membranes of micromeres, mesomeres, and macromeres of the 16-cell sea urchin embryo. A quantitative assessment was made of membrane fracture faces in terms . . .
ArticleRelationship between p62 and p56, two proteins of the mammalian cortical granule envelope, and hyalin, the major component of the echinoderm hyaline layer, in hamstersTalbot, P.Mammalian cortical granules contain two polypeptides (p62 and p56) that are incorporated into the cortical granule envelope after fertilization and function in cleavage of the zygote and the preimplantation blastomeres. Since the echinoderm hyaline la . . .
