cDNA cloning and characterization of vinculin mRNA.

Vinculin and meta-vinculin are related proteins that localize to adherens junctions. To facilitate studies on the biology of these proteins cDNA clones were isolated from a chick embryonic library made in lambda gt 11. Three clones, accounting for 1/2 of the vinculin message, were identified by immunological analyses of fusion proteins and by hybrid… CONTINUE READING
