Protein architecture of the bovine cell surface associated mucins. Protein architecture of the human (Hs) and bovine (Bt) cell surface associated mucins MUC1, MUC3A, MUC4, MUC12, MUC13, MUC15, MUC16, MUC20 and MUC21. MUC16 is presented as a shortened sequence, indicated by //. Domains detected by SMART [39] are SP: signal peptide; PTS: Pro, Thr and Ser rich region; SEA: sea urchin sperm protein-enterokinase-agrin, TM: transmembrane domain; EGF: epidermal growth factor domain; EGF-L: EGF-like domain; NIDO: extracellular domain of unknown function; AMOP: domain involved in cell adhesion; VWD: Von Willebrand Factor D.
