PURPOSE To examine a highly abundant novel transcript from human iris. METHODS Expressed sequence tag (EST) analysis of an adult human iris cDNA library revealed an abundant (>0.7%) transcript for a novel member of the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. Other 3' ESTs from retina were also detected in dbEST. The structure of the leucine-rich(More)
PURPOSE gammaS-crystallins are major components of adult vertebrate lenses. Here we examine the population of gammaS transcripts in adult human lens and the structure of the human CRYGS genes. METHODS Adult lens human transcripts were obtained from NEIBANK, an Expressed Sequence Tag (EST) analysis of human eye tissues. The human CRYGS gene was isolated as(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct and express a fusion gene of fatty acid binding protein (FABP) with Eg95 which are protective antigen genes of Echinococcus granulosus, and investigate the immunological characteristics of the recombinant protein. METHOD Using cDNA fragments encoding FABP and Eg95 genes from E. granulosus Qinghai sheep strain as templates, a fusion(More)
