Expression of novel lipocalin-like milk protein gene is developmentally-regulated during lactation in the tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii
We have identified a novel whey protein (late lactation protein B; LLPB) that is first secreted in the milk of the tammar wallaby around day 200 of lactation. The LLPB cDNA clone of 843 base pairs encodes a mature protein of 156 amino acids. LLPB shares 65 and 48% nucleotide and deduced amino acid identity, respectively, with a previously identified late lactation protein A (LLPA). Both these proteins share significant amino acid sequence homology with the lipocalin protein family. Expression...[Show more]
