The Toxocara canis "abundant novel transcripts" (ant) are four highly expressed products, constituting >18% of ESTs from the infective stage of this widely prevalent nematode parasite. Using 5' RACE, we determined full-length sequences for each ant gene, between 1.8 and 2.8kb. The four genes (termed ant-3, -5, -30 and -34), share no coding sequence similarity, although their 3'UTRs (untranslated regions) are homologous. Predicted ANT-5 and ANT-30 proteins show distant similarity to RNA… CONTINUE READING
