Saprolegnia ferax contains an integrin homologue, identified by crossreactivity with antiserum to the consensus sequence of human/chick/Xenopus cytoplasmic domain beta 1-integrin, which is highly conserved. In non-reduced samples, this integrin was larger than the reported size range for beta 1-integrins, at 178 kDa. In reduced samples, there was a reducing agent-concentration-dependent conversion from 178 kDa to 120 kDa, well within the reported size range for beta 1-integrins in other… CONTINUE READING
