In recent times, new members of the insulin/relaxin peptide superfamily have been identified by both differential cloning strategies as well as bioinformatic searching of the EST databases. We have used the public and Celera Genomics databases to search for novel members of this peptide family. No new members of the insulin/relaxin family were identified although the human (H3) and mouse (M3) relaxin 3 genes that we recently discovered in the Celera Genomics database were identified in the… CONTINUE READING
