Full-length cDNAs encoding the leptin receptor (tfLEPR), leptin receptor overlapping transcript (tfLEPROT) and leptin receptor overlapping transcript-like 1 (tfLEPROTL1) were cloned and sequenced from the pufferfish, Takifugurubripes. The tfLEPR gene encoded an 1116-amino acid protein that includes almost all functionally important domains conserved among vertebrate LEPR such as three fibronectin type III domains, the immunoglobulin (Ig) C2-like domain and a pair of repeated tryptophan/serine… CONTINUE READING
