The identity of the primary in vitro translation products of fetal sheep nuchal ligament elastin mRNA was confirmed as two distinct polypeptides of 63 Kdal and 65 Kdal in both rabbit reticulocyte and wheat germ extract cell-free translation systems. Both polypeptides were co-translationally processed by a microsomal membrane signal peptidase, with the removal of 20-25 amino acid residues. A single (3,5 kb) RNA species encodes both tropoelastin polypeptides. Restriction endonuclease mapping of… CONTINUE READING
