The amino acid sequence of neuropolypeptide h3 from Homo sapiens brain has been determined. It revealed that h3 is the exact counterpart of the 21-kDa protein from Bos taurus brain and the 23-kDa protein from Rattus norvegicus brain: The three proteins belong to the same 21-23-kDa protein family. Multiple tissue Northern blots showed that the mRNA encoding the 21-23-kDa protein is expressed in different amounts according to tissues and species; it is particularly abundant in Rattus norvegicus testis.
