Objectives: The NCBI gene database and human-transcriptome database for alternative splicing were used to determine the expression of mRNAs for P-B (SMR3B) and variant form of P-B. The translational product from the former mRNA was identified as the protein named P-B, whereas that from the latter has not yet been elucidated. In the present study, we investigated the expression of P-B and its variant form at the protein level. Read More
