A cDNA clone encoding egg jelly peptide, SAP-I (Gly-Phe-Asp-Leu-Asn-Gly-Gly-Gly-Val-Gly), was isolated from a Hemicentrotus pulcherrimus ovary cDNA library and its nucleotide sequence was determined. The cDNA was 1282 by long and an open reading frame predicted a protein of 334 amino acids containing 5 SAP-I and 7 SAP-I-like decapeptides, each separated by a single lysine residue. The cDNA hybridized to two species of mRNA (1.3 kb and 2.0 kb) from H. pulcherrimus ovaries. Northern blot analysis… CONTINUE READING
