The most conserved nuclear-encoded polypeptide of cytochrome c oxidase is the putative zinc-binding subunit: primary structure of subunit V from the slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum.


A full-length 515 base pairs cDNA for cytochrome c oxidase subunit V of D. discoideum was isolated from a lambda gt11 expression library. The encoded polypeptide, whose identity was confirmed by partial protein sequencing, is 119 amino acids long (Mr = 13,352) and does not contain a cleavable presequence. The protein, which is homologous to human subunit Vb… (More)
