EP37 family proteins are non-lens members of the betagamma-crystallin superfamily, of which expression is observed in integumental tissues of the Japanese newt, Cynops pyrrhogaster. In the present study, a gene was isolated that has high homology with ep37 and is transcribed mainly in the gastric epithelial cells and hence designated gep. The predicted amino acid sequence of the gep cDNA contains four betagamma-crystallin motifs in the N-terminal half, as is the case in the integumental EP37… CONTINUE READING
