A cDNA encoding a new GH family protein expressed in the rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss) pituitary gland was identified. Because the deduced amino acid sequence of this cDNA shares 56% homology with rainbow trout (rt) somatolactin (rtSL), we named it as rtSL-like protein (rtSLP). Comparison of the amino acid sequences of rtGH, rainbow trout prolactin (rtPRL), and rtSLP revealed that rtSLP shares 26% and 21% identity with that of rtGH and rtPRL, respectively. Trout SLP contains not only the… CONTINUE READING
