In the current study, reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) PCR were used to clone full-length putative Na+–H+ exchanger isoforms (NHE2a) cDNA from the gills of Fundulus heteroclitus. The 2480 bp cDNA includes a coding region for a protein that shows a 57% amino acid homology to rabbit NHE2. These sequences allowed data mining of available fish genome data, which revealed at least three NHE2 subtypes in some teleost species.
