Predicted structure of rabbit N-terminal, calcitonin and katacalcin peptides.


Poly A rich RNA was extracted from rabbit thyroid and cDNA obtained by the action of reverse transcriptase. The cDNA was used to construct a library in lambda GT 11. Screening of the library with a radio-labelled probe specific for human calcitonin allowed the isolation of a clone containing an open reading frame with a high homology with human and murine… (More)
