Fig. 1. Deduced amino acid sequence and nucleotide sequences of the 5' and 3' UTRs of vitellogenin in the kuruma prawn, Marsupenaeus japonicus. The putative signal sequence is shown in italics (–18~–1). Amino acid sequences elucidated in older studies (fragments obtained by digestion with lysyl-endopeptidase) are underlined with a sold line (LE3, LE19, LE21, and LE46); those obtained in Tsutsui et al. (2000) are underlined with a dotted line (LE101–104; fraction 2). Ser or Thr residues that are possibly phosphorylated by casein kinase II are shaded. Two consensus cleavage sequences targeted by endoproteases of the subtilisin family are shown in white lettering with black background. Positions of nucleotides and amino acids are indicated respectively by numbers of the left and right sides of the figures. The polyadenylation signal is doubly underlined. Accession number AB033719 (GenBankTM/EMBL Data Bank).
