A full-length cDNA clone encoding the Xenopus laevis ribosomal protein L8 has been isolated and sequenced. The cDNA has an open reading frame of 257 amino acids. The deduced amino acid sequence is rich in basic residues and extremely homologous to the rat L8 protein. The Xenopus gene is ubiquitously expressed at fairly constant levels during development, consistent with its role as a house-keeping gene.
