Genes and pseudogenes for calmodulin in the spontaneously hypertensive rat



Genes and pseudogenes for calmodulin in the spontaneously hypertensive rat



Journal of Hypertension. Supplement 6(4): S231-S233



The structural organization of calmodulin genes in the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) was extensively studied to search for alterations in calmodulin. We constructed genomic libraries of SHR and cloned all calmodulin-related genes in the genome. We also cloned and sequenced calmodulin complementary (c)DNA from a rat brain (Sprague-Dawley) cDNA library. We cloned three distinct calmodulin genes, naming them CaM I, II and III. Three distinct cDNA clones corresponding to these genes (pRCM1, pRCM3 and pRCM4) were also cloned. These SHR calmodulin genes all encoded normal calmodulin, and no alteration was found. Four processed pseudogenes, lambda SC9 for CaM I gene and lambda SC8, lambda SC19 and lambda SC27 genes for CaM II genes were also cloned and analysed.
