cDNA encoding a novel TCP1-related protein

Biochim Biophys Acta. 1994 Mar 1;1217(2):224-6. doi: 10.1016/0167-4781(94)90041-8.


We report the cloning of a mouse cDNA encoding a novel protein which has significant homology with the t-complex protein 1b (TCP1b). In addition, this protein has high sequence identity with tryptic peptides from the bovine P5 subunit of the TCP1-ring complex. We named this novel protein mTRiC-P5 for mouse TCP1-Ring Complex Protein #5. Results indicate that mTRiC-P5 is a new member of the TCP1-TF55 family and is part of the TCP1-ring complex.
