A novel death-specific gene, ScDSP, was obtained from a death stage subtraction cDNA library of the diatom Skeletonema costatum. The full length of ScDSP cDNA was 921 bp in length, containing a 699-bp open reading frame encoding 232 amino acids and two stretches of 66 and 156 bp in the 5' and 3' untranslated regions, respectively. Analysis of the peptide structure revealed that ScDSP contained a signal peptide domain, a transmembrane domain, and a pair of EF-hand motifs. When S. costatum grew… CONTINUE READING
