Abstract:Summary. Porcine lipoprotein lipase (LPL) cDNA has been cloned and sequenced. The deduced amino acid sequence shows a high degree of identity to LPL from other species, and contains the Ser/His/Asp triade characteristic of serine proteases and esterases. A repetitive element is present in the 3′-untranslated region of the cDNA. A partial cDNA covering the coding region of LPL detects three restriction fragment length polymorphisms with Hin dIII. This represents the first marker assigned to porcine chromosome 14.
