We have isolated a cDNA clone for the Rieske iron-sulfur protein of rat cytochrome bc1 complex, by screening a rat liver cDNA expression library using antiserum directed against the corresponding protein of bovine. The amino acid sequence deduced from the nucleotide sequence of the cDNA indicated that the mature polypeptide of the rat protein consists of 196 amino acid residues with a molecular weight of 21,465, and that it is formed as a precursor with an amino-terminal extension. Northern blot analysis indicated that rat liver possibly contains different sizes of mRNAs for the Rieske iron-sulfur protein, and Southern blot analysis demonstrated that rats and mice possess a single gene for this protein.
