A Xenopus laevis complementary DNA (cDNA) library prepared from messenger RNAs extracted from embryos has been screened for actin-coding sequences. Two cDNA clones corresponding to an alpha cardiac and an alpha skeletal muscle actin mRNA have been identified and characterized. From a genomic library, we have furthermore isolated the genes that correspond to the characterized cDNAs. In addition we have identified an actin processed gene which seems to be derived from a second type of skeletal… CONTINUE READING
