The amino acid sequence of the coat protein of potato virus Y (PVY), the type member of the potyvirus group, has been determined by protein sequencing techniques. The protein contains 267 amino acid residues with a calculated mol wt of 29,945. A comparison of the PVY coat protein sequence with those of tobacco etch virus (TEV) and pepper mottle virus (PeMV)(More)
Two low molecular weight pea seed albumins (Mr approximately 6000 and approximately 4000) have been characterized by protein, cDNA, and gene sequencing. Both proteins are encoded by separate regions of the same mRNA species. The initial translation product is a preproprotein from which a signal sequence is removed co-translationally. The resultant(More)
Two cDNA clones were characterized which correspond to different RNA species whose level is increased by gibberellic acid (GA3) in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) aleurone layers. On the criteria of amino terminal sequencing, amino acid composition and DNA sequencing it is likely that one of these clones (pHV19) corresponds to the mRNA for α-amylase(More)
Human Type IIA secreted phospholipase A(2) (sPLA(2)-IIA) is an important modulator of cytokine-dependent inflammatory responses and a member of a growing superfamily of structurally related phospholipases. We have previously shown that sPLA(2)-IIA is inhibited by a pentapeptide sequence comprising residues 70-74 of the native sPLA(2)-IIA protein and that(More)
The complete amino acid sequence of major acute phase alpha 1-protein of the rat (MAP) was derived from the nucleotide sequence of cloned cDNA. Amino acid analysis and partial sequencing supported the predicted sequence. The amino acid compositions of MAP and rat low-Mr kininogen are identical within experimental variation. The sequence is homologous (60%)(More)
Serological studies and comparison of N-terminal amino acid sequences with the amino acid sequence deduced from a cDNA clone have been used to establish the sequence relationships between the subunits of the pea seed storage protein, vicilin. Subunits smaller than Mr∼50 000 (i.e., Mr 34 000, 30 000, 25 000, 18 000, 14 000, 13 000 and 12 000) show extensive(More)
