Different forms of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) have been described in different tissues. Moreover, the directly determined amino acid sequence amino end of the red cell enzyme does not exactly match the sequence deduced from cDNA isolated from HeLa cells or lymphoblasts. We have therefore investigated the sequence of cDNA from sperm, granulocytes, reticulocytes, brain, placenta, liver, lymphoblastoid cells, and cultured fibroblasts. A novel human cDNA, which has extra 138 bases… CONTINUE READING
