Ferritin, a major iron storage protein of most living organisms, plays a crucial role in iron metabolism. Here we reported the isolation and characterization of a cDNA of ferritin gene from Sinonovacula constricta (denoted as ScFER). The full-length cDNA of ScFER was of 996 bp, consisting of a 5'-UTR of 120 bp, a 3'-UTR of 360 bp, and a complete open reading frame of 516 bp encoding a polypeptide with 171 amino acid residues. The predicted molecular mass of deduced amino acid of ScFER was 19.76… CONTINUE READING
