A 1372bp full length cDNA of an LGBP gene was identified from the Indian white shrimp, Fenneropenaeus indicus. The open reading frame (ORF) of the F. indicus LGBP (Fein-LGBP) was 1164bp long, encoding a polypeptide of 388 amino acids. The Fein-LGBP deduced amino acid has conserved potential recognition motif for β-1, 3 linkages of polysaccharides and putative RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) cell adhesion sites. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the Fein-LGBP was grouped together with LGBPs of other… CONTINUE READING
