The central domain of bovine submaxillary mucin consists of over 50 tandem repeats of 329 amino acids. Chromosomal localization of the BSM1 gene and relations to ovine and porcine counterparts.


We previously elucidated five distinct protein domains (I-V) for bovine submaxillary mucin, which is encoded by two genes, BSM1 and BSM2. Using Southern blot analysis, genomic cloning and sequencing of the BSM1 gene, we now show that the central domain (V) consists of approximately 55 tandem repeats of 329 amino acids and that domains III-V are encoded by a… (More)
