Sequence analysis of the 5' region of the human DF3 breast carcinoma-associated antigen gene.

DF3 antigen is a high molecular weight glycoprotein detectable in human breast carcinomas. Recent studies have demonstrated that the gene coding for the DF3 core protein consists in part of highly conserved 60 base pair tandem repeats. The present work extends these findings by identifying the region of the DF3 gene 5' to the repeats. The results of primer… CONTINUE READING
