In the cFGF-23 assay, antibodies detect 2 different epitopes in the carboxyl terminal portion.
GP96 is the most abundant member of HSP90 in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), contains an N-terminal signal sequence (70 amino acid), characteristic of the ER-targeted proteins and a carboxyl terminal KDEL sequence (Lys-Asp-Glu-Leu), which is a retention/retrieval signal from the golgi to the ER.

HMG-CoA reductase is anchored in the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum, and was long regarded as having seven transmembrane domains, with the active site located in a long carboxyl terminal domain in the cytosol (9).The present study aims to study the lipid components and HMG CoA reductase in hepatocytes of three types of oil fed rats, viz., coconut oil (saturated fat) sunflower oil (PUFA) and mustard oil (MUFA) fed rats under a controlled condition.
[GH.sub.4][C.sub.1] cells expressed an approximate 70-kDa band that was immunoreactive to a rabbit antibody directed to the intracellular carboxyl terminal domain, unique to the P2X7 class of purinergic receptors (Figure 8).
Another important conserved feature identified through sequence analyses is the carboxyl terminal domain of approximately 20 amino acids.
These results lead us to hypothesize that the PEST motif in squid myosin V is located about the same distance away from the carboxyl terminal in the squid myosin V as in chick myosin V.
