  • We report here the first comprehensive comparative NH2‐terminal sequence studies of interstitial retinolbinding protein (IRBPs) from nine mammals (including cattle) and one amphibian. This study has revealed that in many species the N‐terminus of IRBP includes a 3–6 amino acid extension. IRBP possessing this leader sequence is sometimes mixed with IRBP from which this sequence has been excised.
