    We have isolated cDNA clones coding for a lectin (BRA-3) from the acorn barnacle, Megabalanus rosa. Sequence comparison of the cDNA clones has revealed polymorphism in the BRA-3 mRNA, which results from single-nucleotide (nt) differences at three positions. All three differences are within the coding region and cause conservative amino acid (aa) changes. The BRA-3 gene is composed of four exons, and the three single-nt differences are located on different exons. In addition, the BRA-3 mRNA and BRA-3 protein levels increased during early summer in a similar fashion, indicating that BRA-3 production is regulated mainly at the level of transcription.
