We provide information on the gene encoding the K+ channel toxin, HmK, of the sea anemone Heteractis magnifica. A series of DNA amplifications by PCR, which included the amplification of the 5'-untranslated region of the gene, showed that an intron of 402 nucleotides separated the sequence that encodes the matured toxin from the signal peptide sequence. A second 264 nucleotide intron interrupted the 5'-untranslated region of the previously reported HmK cDNA. Two possible transcription… CONTINUE READING
