Abstract

An Aedes albopictus ribosomal protein rpL31 cDNA was sequenced, and found to encode a protein with homology to rat rpL34. The 544 bp mosquito cDNA contained an ATG start site, three in-frame termination codons, and an AATAAA polyadenylation signal. Mosquito rpL31 had a mass of 15 137 Da, a pI of 12.39 and contained 14.5% Arg and 14.5% Lys. PCR analyses with genomic DNA suggested the presence of a large intron near the 5′-end of the gene.
