Abstract

Summary: We have determined the nucleotide sequence of a 1159 bp DNA fragment containing the locus of . The locus contained a single open reading frame of 293 codons. On the basis of the predicted amino acid sequence, the product of the gene is believed to be a protein with an of 31539. The amino-terminal portion of the gene was used to construct a translational fusion with the ’ gene. The hybrid ’ gene was shown to be expressed in and, therefore, it seems reasonable to conclude that the proposed open reading frame for the gene does indeed function .
