ABSTRACT A molecular characterization of yolk proteins in Squilla mantis is presented and their specific features are compared with the characteristics of crustacean yolk proteins as described by other authors. Two immunologically unrelated proteins, A and B, are identified in mature animals by means of immunoelectrophoresis, both showing a different mobility (A° and B°) in early maturing animals when compared with mature forms. Correlation with maturity stages is based on morphological parameters such as total length, cement gland, and ovarian size. Shifts in electrophoretic mobility also occur when hemolymphatic (vitellogenins―VTGs) and ovarian (lipovitellins-LVs) forms are compared in the same individual. The results are compared with those obtained from other decapods and the practical application of VTG quantification techniques in aquaculture is stressed.
