Abstract: Embryos of Balanus glandula will concentrate amino acid from an external source and incorporate it into protein. Moreover, the pattern of incorporation varies between different embryonic stages. It has been found that the lowest incorporation occurs at the early stages and the highest during the middle stages of development.
