Molecular Phylogeny of Metazoan Intermediate Filament Proteins

  title={Molecular Phylogeny of Metazoan Intermediate Filament Proteins},
  author={Andreas Erber and Dieter Riemer and Marc Bovenschulte and Klaus -Josef Weber},
  journal={Journal of Molecular Evolution},
We have cloned cytoplasmic intermediate filament (IF) proteins from a large number of invertebrate phyla using cDNA probes, the monoclonal antibody IFA, peptide sequence information, and various RT-PCR procedures. Novel IF protein sequences reported here include the urochordata and nine protostomic phyla, i.e., Annelida, Brachiopoda, Chaetognatha, Echiura, Nematomorpha, Nemertea, Platyhelminthes, Phoronida, and Sipuncula. Taken together with the wealth of data on IF proteins of vertebrates and… CONTINUE READING
