Same function for a specific protein in any locations?

Post by summer » Fri Aug 19, 2005 9:01 am

i am facing a problem where i am not sure if a specific protein like for example human pituitary folate receptor alpha subunit has the same function, size and structure in any locations of a human body.

as i know a gene can have different start and end signal which means a transcript will end in different products then how come a specific pituitary protein will be identical to other places?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

I think the same protein, structural or fuctional protein, has the same function in any location because the same protein synthesized from the same template, means that it comes from the same amino acids sequence, the same codon sequence, etc..
