A human liver cDNA library enriched for full‐length clones was screened for plasminogen cDNA using a synthetic 24‐nucleotide probe derived from a reported partial cDNA sequence. 12 positive clones were identified and one of these was characterized in detail. The 2.7 kb insert contains the complete coding region. At 5 positions, it gives residues different from those reported in a previous amino acid sequence analysis of the protein. The present results show an extra lle at position 65, Gln… Expand
Characterization of the cDNA coding for mouse plasminogen and localization of the gene to mouse chromosome 17.
TLDR
Analysis of the segregation of two allelic forms, Plgb and Plgd, of plasminogen DNA in three sets of recombinant inbred strains has allowed the localization of the mouse plAsminogen gene to the proximal end of mouse chromosome 17 within the t complex and close to the locus D17Rp17. Expand
The role of carbohydrate in the function of human plasminogen: comparison of the protein obtained from molecular cloning and expression in Escherichia coli and COS cells.
TLDR
The studies suggest that the carbohydrate domains may play an important role in the function of the plasminogen molecule. Expand
Molecular Cloning, Tissue-specific Expression, and Cellular Localization of Human Prostasin mRNA (*)
TLDR
Cloned and characterized the full-length cDNA encoding prostasin and identified its tissue-specific expression and cellular localization and indicates that prostasin mRNA is expressed in prostate, liver, salivary gland, kidney, lung, pancreas, colon, bronchus, renal proximal tubular cells, and prostate carcinoma LNCaP cells.

Homologous plasminogen N-terminal and plasminogen-related gene A and B peptides. Characterization of cDNAs and recombinant fusion proteins.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the Pgn NTP, together with the putative polypeptides encoded by the PRGs, may serve an important function, such as controlling the conformation of Pgn and thus its susceptibility to tissue activators is supported. Expand
Plasminogen and Streptokinase
TLDR
The primary structure of human plasminogen (HPg) has been deduced from the nucleotide sequence of the cDNA and genomic DNA that encode this protein, and has been directly determined by amino acid sequence analysis. Expand
Molecular Cloning of cDNA for Matriptase, a Matrix-degrading Serine Protease with Trypsin-like Activity*
TLDR
The major protease from human breast cancer cells was previously detected by gelatin zymography and proposed to play a role in breast cancer invasion and metastasis is structurally characterized and the name matriptase is proposed for the protease. Expand
Construction, expression, and purification of recombinant kringle 1 of human plasminogen and analysis of its interaction with omega-amino acids.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a fully functional EACA-binding kringle from HPg can be expressed and secreted in E. coli, purified by techniques that do not require refolding, and investigated as an independent structural unit. Expand
Oligosaccharide structures present on asparagine-289 of recombinant human plasminogen expressed in a Chinese hamster ovary cell line.
The oligosaccharide structures linked to Asn289 of a recombinant (r) variant (R561S) human plasminogen (HPg) expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, after transfection of these cells with aExpand
Expression of human plasminogen cDNA in a baculovirus vector-infected insect cell system.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that this expression system produces a full-length functional single-chain rec-HPg, which can be isolated intact from the culture medium, with some consideration for the temporal events that occur in secretion and longer-term degradation of the protein. Expand
Substitution of arginine 719 for glutamic acid in human plasminogen substantially reduces its affinity for streptokinase.
TLDR
It is concluded that Arg719 in human plasminogen is an important determinant of the streptokinase binding site, although further sites are likely to contribute both to the affinity of plAsminogen for streptokerase and to mechanisms by which the active site is formed within the complex. Expand

Characterization of a complementary deoxyribonucleic acid coding for human and bovine plasminogen.
: A cDNA library was constructed in pBR322 from bovine liver mRNA that was enriched for plasminogen mRNA by polysome immunoprecipitation. A 32P-labeled single-stranded cDNA was then prepared from theExpand
High-efficiency cloning of full-length cDNA.
TLDR
The cloning procedure described here mitigates this shortcoming by attributing the high efficiency of cloning full- or nearly full-length cDNA to the fact that the plasmid DNA vector itself serves as the primer for first- and second-strand cDNA synthesis. Expand
cDNA clones coding for the β‐subunit of human liver alcohol dehydrogenase have differently sized 3'‐non‐coding regions
TLDR
The results suggest that human liver β‐ADH mRNAs occur in several size classes, and that in addition to the consensus sequence AATAAA further signals are important for 3'‐end formation. Expand
A cDNA cloning vector that permits expression of cDNA inserts in mammalian cells.
TLDR
A plasmid vector for cloning cDNAs in Escherichia coli is described; the same vector also promotes expression of the cDNA segment in mammalian cells, and it is confirmed that the alpha-globin transcript produced in transfected cells is initiated correctly, spliced at either of the two introns, and polyadenylated either at the site coded in the c DNA segment or at the distal SV40polyadenylation signal.

Amino-acid sequence of the cyanogen-bromide fragment from human plasminogen that forms the linkage between the plasmin chains.
TLDR
The complete amino acid sequence of a cyanogen bromide fragment (122 residues) obtained from plasminogen is described and remarkable homologies with the 'triple loops' ('kringle structures') found in the non-thrombin part of prothrom bin are demonstrated. Expand

TLDR
By peptic digestion of partially reduced and S-carboxymethylated B-chain it was shown that there are two interchain disulphide bridges, which connect the A and B-chains of plasmin, involving Cys-5 and CYS-105 from the B- chain. Expand
Structural relationship between "glutamic acid" and "lysine" forms of human plasminogen and their interaction with the NH2-terminal activation peptide as studied by affinity chromatography.
TLDR
It is shown that lysine-78 and valine-79 in the "glutamic acid" plasminogen actually are the NH2-terminal amino acids in "lysine" and "valine" plAsminogen respectively. Expand
Patterns of Amino Acids near Signal‐Sequence Cleavage Sites
TLDR
In this paper, some such patterns, based on a sample of 78 eukaryotic signal sequences, are presented and discussed, and a first attempt at formulating rules for the prediction of cleavage sites is made. Expand
The peptide chains of human plasmin. Mechanism of activation of human plasminogen to plasmin.
TLDR
It is suggested that the activation of human plasminogen by other activators, such as streptokinase, trypsin, and pig heart activator, may involve a similar hydrolytic cleavage of an arginyl-valine bond. Expand
DNA sequencing with chain-terminating inhibitors.
TLDR
A new method for determining nucleotide sequences in DNA is described, which makes use of the 2',3'-dideoxy and arabinon nucleoside analogues of the normal deoxynucleoside triphosphates, which act as specific chain-terminating inhibitors of DNA polymerase. Expand
