Cloning and sequence analysis of the cDNA encoding the elongation factor-1 beta of Dictyostelium discoideum.

A cDNA encoding elongation factor-1 beta (DdEF-1 beta) for protein synthesis was isolated from Dictyostlium discoideum cells by the differential display (DD) method. The DdEF-1 beta cDNA sequence with a length of 733 bp encodes a protein (M(r) 24.1 kDa) consisting of 214 amino acids. Comparison of the predicted amino acid sequence revealed relatively high… CONTINUE READING
