Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


DNA complementary to chicken ultimobranchial gland mRNA was cloned into the Pst I site of plasmid vector pBR322. A plasmid was selected by DNA-mRNA hybridization. We report here the partial nucleotide sequence of chicken calcitonin mRNA and the deduced complete amino acid sequence of chicken calcitonin.
