Structural analysis of the CD3 zeta/eta locus of the rat. Expression of zeta but not eta transcripts by rat T cells.

Abstract

We analyzed the structure and pattern of expression of rat TCR zeta- and eta-chains to investigate if these components function in activation and development of rat T cells. The rat zeta cDNA contained the complete open reading frame coding for a polypeptide of 164 amino acids and the 5' and 3' noncoding sequences. Comparison of the amino acid sequence to… (More)
