High-level expression in male germ cells of murine P68 RNA helicase mRNA.


The complete cDNA coding for mouse P68 RNA helicase was cloned and its nucleotide sequence was determined. The sequence is about 95% identical to the human equivalent. Whereas the 5'-untranslated region is less conserved (71%), the 3'-ends of mouse and human mRNAs are nearly identical. Between stop codon and poly(A)-tail both sequences are 97% conserved. At… (More)
