Two types of cDNAs coding for a major component of carp egg membrane were clones from a carp ovarian cDNA library. They encode polypeptides of 422-424 amino acid residues whose sequences are homologous to those of medaka and mammalian ZP3. Similar to the mammalian ZP3 genes, carp ZP3 gene also consists of eight exons and seven introns. Carp ZP3 genes are 2.9 kb in length and present in multiple forms. Carp ZP3 is a glycoprotein of 45 kDa. It was transcribed and translated exclusively in oocytes… CONTINUE READING
