A cDNA for choriogenin H (Chg H; formerly high-molecular weight spawning female-specific substances, or H-SF), a precursor protein of the inner layer subunits of egg envelope (chorion) of the teleost fish, Oryzias latipes, was cloned and analyzed. The clone consisted of 1913 bp and contained an open reading frame encoding a signal peptide of 22 aa and Chg H protein of 569 aa. The Chg protein possessed three potential N-glycosylation sites and Pro-X-Y repeat sequences in the first two-fifths of… CONTINUE READING
