The complete amino acid sequence of a pea (Pisum sativum) seed lipoxygenase predicted from a near full-length cDNA.

By P M Ealing and R Casey


A near full-length cDNA for a pea (Pisum sativum) seed lipoxygenase was isolated and sequenced. It has a protein coding sequence (2583 bp), 5' (59 bp) and 3' (191 bp) non-coding regions, and a poly(A) tail (20 bp). The predicted amino acid sequence indicates a polypeptide of Mr 97,628 that shows about 86% amino acid identity with a soya-bean lipoxygenase 3 protein sequence [Yenofsky, Fine & Liu (1988) Mol. Gen. Genet. 211, 215-222]. The cDNA directs the transcription of mRNA that can be translated to give an anti-lipoxygenase-precipitable polypeptide in vitro
