We have isolated cDNA clones of the mRNA for chick embryonic myosin light chain (MLC), L23, by cross-hybridization with chicken skeletal muscle MLC1 cDNA. The identification of the isolated cDNAs was carried out by in vitro translation of hybrid-selected mRNA. Sequence analysis of the cloned cDNAs revealed that the cDNA insert contained 832 nucleotides and predicted a polypeptide of 185 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 20,687. The deduced amino acid sequence for L23 showed high… CONTINUE READING
