The nucleotide sequences of cDNAs coding for human salivary proline-rich proteins (PRPs) were determined. Clones cP1 and cP2 contain repetitive regions in which sites for the restriction enzyme HaeIII occur repeatedly; they code for the precursors of acidic PRPs. Clones cP3 to cP7 contain repetitive regions in which BstNI sites occur repeatedly; they code for precursors of basic and glycosylated PRPs. The clones cP3, cP4, and cP5 are identical except that cP4 and cP5 are missing 399 and 459… CONTINUE READING
