A Chlamydomonas gene encodes a protein that shows sequence similarity with the beta subunit of guanine nucleotide binding proteins from mammals, fruit fly and yeast. In addition to amino acid sequences similarity, each of these proteins contains a segmented repeat structure in which certain amino acids form a consensus sequence. Thus this gene product has been designated a Chlamydomonas beta subunit-like polypeptide (Cblp). The mRNA is constitutively expressed during the cell cycle and during flagellar regeneration.
