Complete amino acid sequence of a basic 21-kDa protein from bovine brain cytosol

Eur J Biochem. 1987 Jul 15;166(2):333-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1432-1033.1987.tb13519.x.


The complete amino acid sequence (186 amino acid residues) of a basic cytosolic protein from bovine brain has been determined. It was previously described as a phosphatidylethanolamine binding protein. Computer analyses have been used to calculate its hydropathy profile and to predict its secondary structure. Comparison with other proteins did not detect any significant sequence similarity, except for a short region which presents 53% sequence homology with bovine phosphatidylcholine transfer protein.
