A G-protein α subunit was cloned from a lobster olfactory organ cDNA library and sequenced. The clone encodes an αi subunit based on the 80% identity its predicted amino acid sequence shares with mammaian αi subunits. On Northern blots of polyadenylated RNA, the clone hybridized to a 5 kb species from several tissues.
