 EP37 is an epidermis-specific protein found in the developing embryo of the Japanese newt, Cynops pyrrhogaster. Our previous study predicted the presence of genes homologous to EP37, which show temporary shared expression at the turn of metamorphosis. In this study, we isolated and characterized three cDNAs encoding novel EP37 homologues; two from the skin of an adult newt and the other from swimming larva. Conceptual translation of the open reading frames of these cDNAs predicted proteins… CONTINUE READING
