Three cDNA sequences encoding the gonadotropin subunits, common glycoprotein alpha subunit (GTHalpha), FSHbeta and LHbeta subunits were isolated from marbled eel. The cDNA of GTHalpha encodes 116 amino acids with a signal peptide of 24 amino acids and a mature peptide of 92 amino acids. The FSHbeta subunit consists of 127 amino acids with a 22 amino acid signal peptide and a 105 amino acid mature peptide, while the LHbeta subunit consists of 140 amino acids with a 24 amino acid signal peptide… CONTINUE READING
