Natriuretic peptide in B. flaviceps venom gland cDNA library. A) The deduced amino acid sequence of the full length precursor is shown. The predicted signal peptide of the transcripts is shown in bold. The putative mature NP is boxed. B) Alignment of B. flaviceps NP with other snake venom NPs including human NP. The amino acid sequences were obtained from the database. The accession number, name of the protein and the organism are shown in the figure. The sequences were aligned manually and the gaps are filled with dashes, those amino acids which are not shown in the alignment are represented by ":". The cysteine residues involved in forming the 17 residue ring structure are highlighted in the figure.
