Nucleotide sequence of cloned cDNA for bovine corticotropin-β-lipotropin precursor

Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of a 1,091-base pair cloned cDNA insert encoding bovine corticotropin-β-lipotropin precursor mRNA is reported. The corresponding amino acid sequence indicates that the precursor protein consists of repetitive units and includes a third melanotropin sequence in its cryptic portion. Pairs of lysine and arginine residues separate the component peptides of the precursor.
