Cloning and expression of the cDNA for canine tumor necrosis factor-alpha in E. coli.


We have utilized the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to clone the protein coding region of canine tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha) cDNA. The gene displays 90% sequence homology to the corresponding human TNF-alpha cDNA. The predicted initial translation product is 233 amino acids and shows 88% homology to the human counterpart, and… (More)
