Full-length cDNA sequence of a progesterone membrane-binding protein from porcine vascular smooth muscle cells

Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1996 Dec 4;229(1):86-9. doi: 10.1006/bbrc.1996.1761.


A full-length cDNA clone for a progesterone membrane binding protein from porcine vascular smooth muscle cells was isolated and the complete nucleotide sequence determined. The cDNA encodes a protein of 194 amino acids with a transmembrane segment. This protein is likely to represent the first steroid membrane receptor or a part of it for which sequence information is available.
