Abstract

Immunofluorescent and radioautographic studies demonstrate that ovalbumin and avidin are cell-specific proteins synthesized by different epithelial cells in the chick oviduct mucosa. The mechanism of the selective induction of ovalbumin synthesis by estrogen and of avidin synthesis by progesterone may be through stimulation of specific target cells by these hormones.
