Cardiotrophin (CT)-1 was discovered by coupling expression cloning with an embryonic stem cell-based model of cardiogenesis. Comparison of similarity in amino acid sequence and conformational structure indicates that CT-1 is a member of the interleukin (IL)-6 type cytokine family that shares the transmembrane signaling protein, glycoprotein (gp) 130 as a… CONTINUE READING
