We report the first isolation and sequencing of genomic BAC clones containing the marsupial milk protein genes Whey Acidic Protein (WAP) and Early Lactation Protein (ELP). The stripe-faced dunnart WAP gene sequence contained five exons, the middle three of which code for the WAP motifs and four disulphide core domains which characterize WAP. The dunnart ELP gene sequence contained three exons encoding a protein with a Kunitz motif common to serine protease inhibitors. Fluorescence in situ...[Show more]
