Molecular cloning, functional characterization and localization of an annexin from a fish gill fluke Microcotyle sebastis (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea).


The full cDNA of an annexin gene from Microcotyle sebastis (MsANX) was cloned for the first time in monogeneans. The cDNA of MsANX comprises 1199bp with a 29bp 5' untranslated region, an open reading frame of 1062bp, and a 108bp 3' untranslated region. The recombinantly produced MsANX bound phosphatidylserine vesicles in the presence of Ca2+, whereas no… (More)
