We report the nucleotide sequence of the single muscle actin gene of the sea urchinStrongylocentrotus purpuratus. Comparison of the protein-coding sequence of this muscle actin gene (pSpG28) with that of two linked sea urchin cytoskeletal actin genes (pSpG17 and CyIIa) reveals a region of exceptional sequence conservation from codon 61 through codon 120. Furthermore, when silent nucleotide changes are compared, the conservation of this region is still evident (7.9% silent site differences in… CONTINUE READING
