We have isolated three cDNA clones for human alpha 2-plasmin inhibitor (alpha 2-PI). Two clones are from human hepatoma cell line, Hep G2, and cover the entire protein coding region plus the 3'-flanking region up to the poly(A) sequence, and the other clone is from human liver and contains the carboxyl-terminal half. The total length of the cDNAs is 2.29 kb, corresponding to more than 95% of the full-length mRNA. alpha 2-PI seems to consist of 452 amino acid residues plus 39 amino acid residues… CONTINUE READING
