Abstract
Abstract Three proteins have been identified in the eye lens of the octopus, Octopus dofleini. A 22 kDa protein comprising 3–5% of the soluble protein of the lens is 35–43% identical to a family of phosphatidylethanolamine-binding proteins of vertebrates. Other members of this family include the immunodominant antigen of the filarial parasite, Onchocerca volvulus, putative odorant-binding proteins of Drosophila and a protein with unknown function of Caenorhabditis elegans. We have called this protein O-crystallin on the basis of its abundance in the transparent lens. O-Crystallin mRNA was detected only in the lens. Two tryptic peptides of another octopus lens pr...
