- The oocytes of the marine goby Pomatoschistus minutus were analyzed for their amino acid content. Most of the amino acids exist as protein, only a little part is free or peptide-bound. Among the protein-bound amino acids, high levels of glutamic acid, proline, alanine, aspartic acid, valine and leucine were detected. These represent more than 60% of the protein amino acids. Among the free acids, glutamic acid, serine and alanine, are dominant. There are no certain proofs of the occurrence of peptide pools in the oocytes of Pomatoschistus minutus.
