The cDNA for Bubalus bubalis growth hormone (GH) has been cloned and sequence determined through RT-PCR approach. The nucleotide sequence of bubaline GH cDNA was in a single reading frame coding for a protein of 191 residues comprising a putative signal sequence of 27 amino acids. Homol-ogy comparison of the sequence with other mammalian GH cDNAs showed a very high degree of evolutionary conservation. Bubaline GH sequence shared a homology of 99.5%, 99.5%, 98.6%, 87.6% and 61.9% with that of ovine, caprine, bovine, porcine and human, respectively at amino acid level.
