We report the cloning of a cDNA and two corresponding β-globin genes of the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) as well as two genes for α-globins. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the cDNA shows that the predicted β-globin peptide comprises 148 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of 16,127 Da and an overall amino acid similarity of 40–50% to higher vertebrates and 60–90% to fish sequences. The study of the genomic organization of α- and β-globin genes shows that, as is the case in Xenopus… CONTINUE READING
