By screening a mouse cosmid library with a human HST probe under reduced conditions of stringency, we isolated several positive clones. One of them was identified as a new member of the fibroblast growth factor gene family, and called FGF.6. The human FGF.6 gene was subsequently isolated and sequenced. The deduced amino-acid sequence exhibited 70% identity with the HST gene product over the C-terminal two-thirds of the putative protein. FGF.6 was mapped to chromosome 12 at band p13 by in situ… CONTINUE READING
