Complementary DNAs encoding precursor molecules of the pituitary glycoprotein hormone (PGH) alpha- and luteinizing hormone (LH) beta-subunits of Japanese quail were isolated from a quail adenohypophyseal cDNA library using corresponding chicken cDNAs as hybridization probes. The isolated cDNAs had a length of 695 and 724 bp, respectively, and contained sequences of 5' and 3' untranslated regions and an entire coding region of the precursor molecules. Two series of incompletely repeating and… CONTINUE READING
