Nucleotide sequences of three different isoforms of beta-tubulin cDNA from Chinese hamster ovary cells

Biochim Biophys Acta. 1991 Oct 8;1090(2):252-4. doi: 10.1016/0167-4781(91)90112-y.


The complete cDNA sequences of two clones encoding beta-tubulin isotypes and the partial sequence of a third isoform from Chinese hamster ovary cells have been determined. The deduced amino acid sequences of the three isoforms show extensive homology to each other as well as with other alpha and beta-tubulin sequences from various species. These results provide evidence for the expression of three different isoforms of beta-tubulin in Chinese hamster ovary cells.
