Abstract: Available data indicate that crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) stimulates
membrane-bound guanylyl cyclase (GC), producing cyclic guanosine 30,50–monophosphate, which
in turn mediates the effect of CHH on carbohydrate metabolism. In the present study, we report
the cloning of a cDNA (PcGC-M2) encoding a putative membrane form GC from the muscle
of the crayfish, Procambarus clarkii. Analysis of the deduced amino acid sequence shows that
PcGC-M2 contains the signature domains characteristic of membrane form GCs, including an
extracellular ligand-binding domain, a single transmembrane, and intracellular kinase-like and
cyclase catalytic domains. In addition, a C-terminal domain of 247 residues is present following the
cyclase catalytic domain. PcGC-M2 is most closely related (33% identity) to a Drosophila membrane
form GC (DrGC–1), and an Anopheles gambiae membrane form GC (AgaGC); the three GCs also
share a similar distribution pattern of conserved cysteine residues in the extracellular domain. The
PcGC-M2 transcript is expressed in several CHH target tissues, including muscle, hepatopancreas,
heart, ovary, testis, and gill, suggesting that PcGC-M2 may participate in the signaling cascade
activated by CHH. J. Exp. Zool.
