The cDNA sequence of rabbit liver transferrin has been determined. The largest cDNA was 2279 base pairs (bp) in size and encoded 694 amino acids consisting of a putative 19 amino acid signal peptide and 675 amino acids of plasma transferrin. The deduced amino acid sequence of rabbit liver transferrin shares 78.5% identity with human liver transferrin and 69.1% and 44.8% identity with porcine and Xenopus transferrins, respectively. At the amino acid level, vertebrate transferrins share 26.4% identity and 56.5% similarity. The most conserved regions correspond to the iron ligands and the anion binding region. Optimal alignment of transferrin sequences required the insertion of a number of gaps in the region corresponding to the N-lobe. In addition, the N-lobes of transferrins share less amino acid sequence similarity than the C-lobes.
