The cDNAs of hypodermins, enzymes secreted by the larvae of the parasitic fly Hypoderma lineatum, were sequenced. Four cDNA clones were isolated, one encoding hypodermin A (HA), one encoding hypodermin C (HC), and the two others encoding proteins related to hypodermin B (HB). The amino acid sequences deduced from the nucleotide sequences confirmed that these enzymes are serine proteases. HA and one of the HB proteins had potential N-linked glycosylation sites. Analysis of hypodermin protein… CONTINUE READING
