The amino acid sequence of arginine kinase (AK) from the shrimp Penaeus japonicus has been determined chemically. It consists of 355 amino acid residues, and has a calculated molecular mass of 40,018 Da. The amino acid sequence of Penaeus AK showed 91% and 51% identity, respectively, with those of AKs from the lobster Homarus vulgaris and the abalone Nordotis madaka. It also showed significant homology (39-43%) with vertebrate or invertebrate creatine kinases and annelid glycocyamine kinase… CONTINUE READING
