Analysis of salmon calcitonin I in the ultimobranchial gland and gill filaments during development of rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, by in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical staining.

Abstract

We have cloned two distinct cDNAs encoding salmon-type calcitonin (sCT)-I cDNAs from the ultimobranchial gland of rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss. Both cDNAs were predicted to encode nearly identical sCT-I precursors which consisted of an N-terminal peptide of 80 amino acid residues, a putative cleavage site Lys-Arg, sCT-I, a cleavage and amidation… (More)
