Molecular identification of candidate Aplysia californica chemoreceptor genes. Deduced amino acid sequence and schematic model of (a) AcCRa cDNA isolated from rhinophore laser capture microdissection (LCM) RNA (GenBank: EU935862), (b) AcCRb cDNA isolated from rhinophore LCM RNA (GenBank: EU808014) and, (c) AcCRc cDNA isolated from oral tentacle cDNA (GenBank: EU808013). Arrowhead, indicates position of intron/exon boundary and boxed grey areas indicate predicted transmembrane domains (based on HMMTOP version 2.0 program). Unfilled boxes show relative positions of the conserved motif Glu-Arg-Cys (ERC) at the proximal part of the cytoplasmic 2 domain.
