Cathepsin L is one of the crucial enzyme superfamilies and involved in the immune responses. In this study, a cDNA encoding cathepsin L cysteine protease was identified and characterized from pearl oyster Pinctada fucata (designated as poCL1). The poCL1 cDNA was 1160 bp long and consisted of a 5'-untranslated region (UTR) of 15 bp, a 3'-UTR of 149 bp with a polyadenylation signal (AATAAA) at 11 nucleotides upstream of the poly(A) tail, and an open reading frame (ORF) of 996 bp encoding a… CONTINUE READING
