The precursor protein proopiomelanocortin (POMC) gives rise to a variety of biologically active peptides through cell-specific posttranslational processing. Two transcripts of pomc were found in the flatfish Solea senegalensis (ssePOMC-A and ssePOMC-B), that most likely represent subfunctionalized paralogues: ssePOMC-A lacks the N-terminal cleavage site for β-MSH, whereas ssePOMC-B cannot yield ACTH and completely lacks the opioid consensus sequence in the β-END region. An analysis of… CONTINUE READING
