RNA was isolated from rabbit liver and used to direct the synthesis of total cDNA. Rabbit eIF-2β transcripts were then specifically amplified by PCR and sequenced. RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends) was used to obtain 3′ and 5′ sequences. Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequence with that of human eIF-2β reveals a very high degree of sequence identity.
