Random sequencing of molecules from a cDNA library constructed from mantle mRNA of the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata was used to obtain information on organic matrix proteins in the shell. In the determined sequences, we identified 7 distinct cDNAs encoding similar glycine-rich domains. Complete sequence analysis of these cDNAs showed that the predicted sequences of the proteins, which we named shematrins, possessed similar domains comprising repeat sequences of two or more glycines, followed by… CONTINUE READING
