Regucalcin is a Ca2+-binding protein, which plays a regulatory role in liver cell functions related to Ca2+. In this study we have cloned cDNA for regucalcin from rabbit, bovine, chicken and toad livers by using rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) method. The nucleotide and amino acid sequences of them are compared with published human, rat and mouse sequences. Comparison analysis revealed that the nucleotide sequences of regucalcin from seven vertebrate species were highly conserved in… CONTINUE READING
