Sequence comparisons of complementary DNAs encoding aequorin isotypes.


Aequorin is the Ca2+-activated photoprotein which participates in the bioluminescence from the circumoral ring of the hydromedusa Aequorea victoria. The nucleotide sequences of five aequorin cDNAs have been compared and shown to code for three aequorin isoforms. The cDNA AEQ1 contains the entire protein coding region of 196 amino acids. The other four cDNAs… (More)
