Isolation and sequence analysis of a cDNA encoding the ATP/ADP translocator of Zea mays L

Nucleic Acids Res. 1985 Aug 26;13(16):5857-67. doi: 10.1093/nar/13.16.5857.


A cDNA complementary to the mRNA for the ATP/ADP translocator of maize (Zea mays L.) has been identified by virtue of hybridisation with the homologous gene from yeast. The cloned cDNA has been shown by DNA sequence analysis to contain an open reading frame of 954bp., which encodes a polypeptide of molecular weight 40,519. This polypeptide exhibits a high degree of homology to the translocator polypeptides of beef heart and Neurospora crassa mitochondria.
