A novel thrombin inhibitory protein coding gene was identified from a cDNA library derived from salivary gland of partially-fed Haemaphysalis longicornis (hard tick). The gene encoded a 93-amino acid protein, designated chimadanin, which had a signal peptide sequence and was predicted to be a secretory protein. It showed no similarity to any other previously identified proteins or conserved domain sequences. The gene was expressed during blood feeding and suggested to be expressed mainly in the… CONTINUE READING
