The sequence of a Xenopus laevis TFIID subunit reveals remarkable conservation among vertebrates.
A cDNA clone encoding a Xenopus laevis (Xl) homologue of human transcription factor IID (TFIID) subunit p80 was isolated and sequenced. The deduced 618-amino-acid (aa) sequence was compared to the homologous from human, mouse, rat and Drosophila melanogaster (Dm). A highly conserved region exists in the central region among these species. In contrast, the C-terminal region has significant homology among vertebrates, whereas the corresponding region of the Dm homologue shows poor homology.
