CD44 is a cell-surface glycoprotein involved in leukocyte adherence, T-cell activation and lymphocyte homing. We have isolated and sequenced a cDNA clone which encodes for bovine CD44. The predicted amino acid sequence of bovine CD44 has an overall high similarity with that of human and mouse CD44, 79.5 and 73.2%, respectively. In all three species, CD44 has a similar transmembrane region and cytoplasmic tail. In addition, all of the cysteine residues and a majority of the putative N-linked… CONTINUE READING
