Sequence of a 17 kDa vacuolar H(+)-ATPase proteolipid subunit from insect midgut and Malpighian tubules. Academic Article uri icon


  • A 0.4 kb polymerase chain reaction (PCR) product obtained from cDNA made from the midgut and Malpighian tubules of fifth instar larvae of Heliothis virescens was used to screen a larval midgut and Malpighian tubules cDNA library. Four clones were obtained, one of 1.9 kb and others of 1.4 kb. The 1.9 kb clone encodes a 17.2 kDa protein which is highly homologous to other vacuolar ATPases proteolipids. Putative N-glycosylation and DCCD binding sites were observed at amino acid residues 83 and 139, respectively.
