Red cells of the clam Barbatia reeveana express two hemoglobins, one composed of 16- to 17-kDa chains and the other of 35-kDa chains. The nucleotide sequence of the cDNA encoding the 35-kDa chain shows that the polypeptide has two very similar heme-binding domains, which are joined without use of an additional bridging sequence. Two novel introns occur in the gene for the two-domain globin: one, the "precoding" intron, is located two bases 5' from the start codon, and the other, a "bridge… CONTINUE READING
