A cDNA encoding an apolipoprotein (Apo) has been isolated from the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and sequenced. It encodes a peptide of 258 amino acids (aa), including a signal peptide of 18 aa, with 5'- and 3'-untranslated regions of the mRNA of 12 and 329 nucleotides, respectively. The protein has structural features in common with other Apo's of human and avian origin, including conserved sequences in the signal peptide and a series of internal repeats of 22 aa. The sequence has been… CONTINUE READING
