We screened the Berkeley "Drosophila Genome Project" database with "electronic probes" corresponding to conserved amino acid sequences from the five known rat somatostatin receptors. This yielded alignment with a Drosophila genomic clone that contained a DNA sequence coding for a protein, having amino acid sequence identities with the rat galanin receptors… CONTINUE READING
