During the large-scale sequencing analysis of a human fetal brain cDNA library, we isolated two cDNA clones encoding two novel proteins, which show 52% and 72% identity to the cyclophilin isoform 10 of C. elegans, respectively. Sequence analysis revealed these two cDNA clones are two different splicing variants of a novel cyclophilin-like gene (PPIL3). The PPIL3 gene was identified on a completely sequenced BAC (GenBank accession AC005037) from chromosome 2q33 between STS markers stSG2762… CONTINUE READING
