Abstract

The cDNA coding for a novel member of the cysteine-rich protein family was isolated from a rat brain cDNA library. It encodes a protein, denoted cysteine-rich protein 2 (CRP2), of 208 amino acid residues containing two tandem repeats of an unusual LIM/double zinc-finger-like motif. The ubiquitous tissue distribution and high level of expression of CRP2 mRNA suggest an important role for CRP2 in cell functions.
