Lack of NH2-terminal processing of actin from Acanthamoeba castellanii.

Abstract

Acanthamoeba actin is the only actin sequenced to date that has neither an NH2-terminal Ac-Asp nor Ac-Glu residue. The protein begins with an Ac-Gly-Asp and is coded for by a gene that specifies a polypeptide beginning Met-Gly-Asp. Thus, the Acanthamoeba actin gene would appear to specify a class II actin with the usual NH2-terminal Cys replaced with a Gly… (More)
