Structural and functional properties of two human FXYD3 (Mat-8) isoforms.

Six of 7 FXYD proteins have been shown to be tissue-specific modulators of Na,K-ATPase. In this study, we have identified two splice variants of human FXYD3, or Mat-8, in CaCo-2 cells. Short human FXYD3 has 72% sequence identity with mouse FXYD3, whereas long human FXYD3 is identical to short human FXYD3 but has a 26-amino acid insertion after the… CONTINUE READING
