Abstract

Total RNA as well as transfer RNA were quantified from mature ova apart from four different embryonic stages namely mid-cleavage, early gastrula, mid-gastrula and organogenesis of the freshwater teleost Heteropneustes fossilis. Total RNA as well as transfer RNA quantity follow a similar variation pattern, being maximum during mid-gastrulation. When analysed by total amino acid acceptance capacity, transfer RNA shows its maximum activity during mid-gastrulation. This coincides with the higher ratio of tRNA to total RNA at this stage. The relative aminoacylation capacity for Ser, Gly, Asn and Thr are found to be higher (9-34%) compared to that for other amino acids. Total tRNA, resolved into three peaks upon HPLC fractionation, shows a high cumulative peak area during mid-gastrulation and organogenesis. These results indicate a switch over of maternal to embryonic translation machinery during gastrulation.
