Abstract

Using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), we have amplified vimentin (Vim)-encoding sequences from both total and polyadenylated bovine lens RNA. The amplified products were cloned and the nucleotide sequences determined. The amino-acid sequence of bovine vimentin shows 97.2, 96.8, 96.3 and 84.9% homology with reported aa sequences of human, mouse, hamster and chicken Vim, respectively.
