We report the cloning of cDNAs encoding multiple isoforms of the pig analogue of human decay-accelerating factor (DAF; CD55). Screening of a pig muscle cDNA library using a human DAF probe identified a single clone that encoded a DAF-like molecule comprising three short consensus repeats (SCR) homologous with the amino-terminal three SCR in human DAF, a serine/threonine-rich (ST) region, and sequence compatible with a transmembrane domain and cytoplasmic tail. Northern blot and RT-PCR analysis… CONTINUE READING
