|Abstract||Subsequent to our earlier report on the first purification of antiquitin protein from seabream liver and demonstration of its enzymatic activity [FEBS Letters 516 (2002) 183-186], we report herein the cloning of its full-length cDNA sequence. The open reading frame encodes a protein of 511 amino acids. Results of RT-PCR indicate that antiquitin is highly expressed in both the seabream liver and kidney. Transfection studies in cultured eukaryotic cells provided further evidence that it is a cytosolic protein. Bacterial expression of the enzyme was also performed. The purified recombinant protein was demonstrated to exhibit similar kinetic properties as the native enzyme.|
