A number of structurally very similar pheromone-binding proteins (major urinary proteins; MUPs) are synthesized in mouse liver and rapidly excreted in the urine. Male and female inbred mice display different characteristic patterns of MUP expression. Here we present a detailed study of the RNA and protein products corresponding to specific MUP genes previously isolated from genomic DNA of the Balb/c strain. By in vitro transcription of equivalent cDNA clones, translation of the resulting RNA in… CONTINUE READING
