The phosphatidylglycerol/phosphatidylinositol transfer protein (PG/PI-TP) is a new and original phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) isolated from the Deuteromycete, Aspergillus oryzae. We have isolated a genomic clone of the A. oryzae pg/pi-tp using a probe derived from the corresponding cDNA and sequenced the complete gene. The DNA sequence analysis revealed that pg/pi-tp gene is composed of three exons encoding a 18,823 Da protein of 175 amino acids as previously described and of two introns… CONTINUE READING
