The structure and sequence of the single calmodulin gene of Drosophila melanogaster
The work described involves the isolation and characterization of the gene encoding the calmodulin protein in the dipteran species, Drosophila melanogaster. The two major protein coding exons, designated 2 and 3, had been previously isolated. Together they encode 139 of a total of 148 amino acids. These exons were used to screen a D. melanogaster embryonic cDNA library in order to isolate clones containing sequences derived from the remaining exons. The clones obtained in this manner eventually led to the identification of two additional exons. Exon 4 contains the remaining protein coding sequences as well as the 3
