Two cDNAs, size 969 bp and 1146 bp respectively, encoding goldfish gamma-preprotachykinin (gamma-PPT) were identified. Both cDNAs contain the same 345 bp open reading frame. The deduced 114-amino acid gamma-PPT contains the sequence of substance P, carassin and neurokinin A. sequence analysis of the two cDNA 5'-untranslated regions shows that the two cDNAs… CONTINUE READING
