Tensin, an actin filament capping protein first purified from chicken gizzard, is localized to various types of adherens junctions in muscle and nonmuscle cells. In this paper, we describe the isolation and sequencing of tensin cDNA from a chicken cardiac library. The 6.3-kb chicken cardiac tensin cDNA encodes an open reading frame of 1,792 amino acids. Mammalian cells transfected with the chicken tensin cDNA expressed a polypeptide of approximately 200 kD recognizable by antibodies to chicken… CONTINUE READING
