Molecular cloning and characterization of a mono(ADP-ribosyl)transferase from human testis.


A human homologue of the rodent T cell mono(ADP-ribosyl)transferase RT6 mRNA was identified by a systematic partial sequencing of human testis transcripts. This messenger encodes for a precursor protein of 367 aa (MW: 41.5 kDa) which exhibits a peptide signal, consensus domains for mono(ADP-ribosyl)transferase and a C terminal part which contains three… (More)
