Two zebrafish cDNA clones encoding homologs of mammalian zona pellucida proteins ZP2 and ZP3 were isolated from a whole adult cDNA library. The ZP2 clone encodes a protein of 428 amino acids. Unlike other teleost ZP2s that contain an N-terminal repetitive domain enriched with prolines and glutamines, the zebrafish ZP2 has no such repetitive domain. In the C-terminal non-repetitive domain, the zebrafish ZP2 shares 55-76% sequence identity with other teleost ZP2s. The ZP3 cDNA clone encodes a… CONTINUE READING
