A comparison of the DNA and protein sequences of a group of zein cDNA clones reveals that they share extensive sequence homology and probably originated from a common ancestral gene. A comparison of clones corresponding to Mr 22,000 polypeptides shows they are 92% homologous, while five clones corresponding to the Mr 19,000 zeins vary in homology from 75 to 95%. The clones corresponding to the Mr 22,000 proteins are 60-65% homologous to clones encoding the Mr 19,000 zein proteins. A clone… CONTINUE READING
