Stomatin-like protein 2 (SLP-2) is a novel and unusual member of the stomatin gene superfamily. In this study, we obtained a full-length SLP-2 (SmSLP-2) cDNA from turbot (Scopthalmus maximus) spleen cDNA library. The cDNA sequence of SmSLP-2 contains a 5'-UTR of 107 bp, an ORF of 1050 bp, and a 3'-UTR of 959 bp. The ORF encodes a putative protein of 349 residues, which has a calculated molecular mass of 38.7 kDa. The SmSLP-2 protein possesses a prohibitin-homology (PHB) domain (residues 40 to… CONTINUE READING
