Cloning and nucleotide sequence of a full-length cDNA for human 14 kDa beta-galactoside-binding lectin.


A full-length cDNA for a 14K-type human lung beta-galactoside-binding lectin was cloned. The cDNA includes a 405 bp open reading frame coding 135 amino acids including the initiator methionine, and having a single internal EcoRI site and a polyadenylation signal. The deduced amino-acid sequence agreed completely with the sequence of a human placenta lectin… (More)
