Abstract

The carp γ-crystallin gene family was found to be composed of at least three members: γm1, γm2 and γm3. The encoded products are very similar to other known γ-crystallins but with their own peculiarities: (1) they all have a high methionine content: 12.4%, 14% and 8.4% in γm1, γm2 and γm3, respectively; and (2) the amino acid sequences are aberrant in the region before connecting peptides and its corresponding region in motif 4. Their protein structures might remain the same as those of other γ-crystallins since they retain all the conserved amino acid residues essential for maintaining the loops in the protein structures.
