Saliva influences rumen function in cattle, yet the biochemical role for most of the bovine salivary proteins (BSPs) has yet to be established. Two cDNAs (BSP30a and BSP30b) from bovine parotid salivary gland were cloned and sequenced, each coding for alternate forms of a prominent protein in bovine saliva. The BSP30 cDNAs share 96% sequence identity with each other at the DNA level and 83% at the amino acid level, and appear to arise from separate genes. The predicted BSP30a and BSP30b… CONTINUE READING
