Chemosterilization of Musca domestica L. with P, P-bis- (1-aziridinyl)-N-(-methoxypropyl) phosphinothioic amede produced long-term changes in haemolymph and ovarian proteins as determined by gel acrylamide electrophoresis. There were 2 areas of protein accumulation (Fractions 3-5 and 12-13) in the haemolymph but only one in the ovaries (Fractions 3-5) after aziridinyl chemosterilization. Although Fraction 3 may be the "female protein" there was no corresponding accumulation visible in newly deposited chemosterilized eggs. The protein pattern of newly deposited chemosterilized eggs was similar to that of normal eggs, but progressive changes, which were very different from the changes in normal eggs during embryo genesis occurred after oviposition.
