  • The human pregnancy-specific glycoprotein (PSG) family consists of eleven closely related molecules mainly synthesized by placental syncytiotrophoblasts and whose function(s) are unknown. They belong to the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) family. As a step toward understanding PSG function, we have analysed 84 PSG cDNA clones from a fetal liver library with respect to domain arrangement and PSG identity. Four novel PSG cDNAs derived from the PSG4, PSG7, PSG11, and PSG13 genes were characterized… CONTINUE READING
