Water-insoluble proteins of the periostracum of Perna viridis and Meretrix casta.

D. Yamuna and Soumini Balakrishnan

A study of water—insoluble fraction of proteins of periostracum of Meretrtx casta and Perma viridis was made. The water—insoluble fractions (alkali soluble and alkali insoluble) were subjected to amino-acid analysis for an understanding of the nature of the proteins. A heterogeneous nature of the proteins was found out from the chromatographic analysis.
