A beta-1,3-glucan binding protein (GBP) has been isolated from a shrimp hemocyte cDNA library. Its open reading frame consists of 1314 nucleotides with a polyadenylated sequence and a poly A tail. It encodes a polypeptide of 370 amino acids including a 17 amino acid-signal peptide. The mature protein has an estimated molecular mass of 39.5 kDa and a predicted pI of 5.5. Sequence comparison shows a high degree of similarity to invertebrate recognition proteins with glucanase-like domains for… CONTINUE READING
