Calreticulin (CRT) plays crucial roles in the regulation of Ca2+ homeostasis, immune responses and molecular chaperon. In this study, a new member of the CRT gene (denoted as AjCRT) was cloned and characterized from the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus. The full-length of the gene was of 3316 bp, which consisted of 204 bp 5’ untranslated region (UTR), 1870 bp of 3’-UTR and a putative 1242-bp open reading frame encoding a 48-kDa polypeptide (AjCRT) with a theoretical pI of 4.19. AjCRT had 59… Expand
