Cloning and sequence analysis of cDNA for porcine beta-neo-endorphin/dynorphin precursor.

Abstract

The primary structure of a precursor protein that contains beta-neo-endorphin, dynorphin and a third leucine-enkephalin sequence with a carboxyl extension has been deduced from the nucleotide sequence of cloned DNA complementary to the porcine hypothalamic mRNA encoding it. The three peptides are each bounded by Lys-Arg. This precursor protein, like adrenal preproenkephalin and the corticotropin/beta-lipotropin precursor, comprises multiple repetitive units and a cysteine-containing amino-terminal sequence preceded by a signal peptide.
