1995), the sequences were analyzed through NCBI and consulted the spreading of exons, the amino acid residue 1-23 was signal peptide area, the aa 24-107 was a1 area, the aa 108-201 was a2 area, the aa202-252 was transmembrane and cytoplasmic region.
The question of whether the antigens recognized by NN18 antibody are attached to the myoplasmic cytoskeletal domain, an egg cytoplasmic region thought to be involved in muscle cell specification (Jeffery and Meier, 1983), must await future studies.
One would guess, although it has not been shown, that the various cytoplasmic regions of different densities retained their identity (Smith and Neff, 1986) thanks to the egg cytoskeleton.
