A double-stranded ribonuclease (Bm-dsRNase) was separated from the digestive juice of the silkworm larvae, Bombyx mori. The full-length cDNA was produced and sequenced using a 20 mer primer designed from the N-terminal sequence of the Bm-dsRNase. The cDNA had an ORF encoding 51 kDa precursor protein which can be divided into three domains: a signal peptide, an N-terminal propeptide and a mature Bm-dsRNase. The precursor has an Arg-Ser cleavage site, which produces the 43 kDa mature protein by… CONTINUE READING
