Comparison of BiP amino sequence (partial) among grouper and other vertebrates. Two unigenes (unigene44883 and unigene52488) of grouper BiP were obtained. Unigene44883 encodes the first 109 residues of the Bip open reading frame, and unigene52488 encodes 155 a.a., with 3 residues overlapped with the C’-terminus of the fragment of the first 109 a.a. A partial grouper BiP open reading frame showed greater than 93% and 87% in sequence similarity and identity with other vertebrates, respectively.
