Synthesis and cloning of a human beta-casomorphin-5 gene.


As so far a singularity among opioid peptides, bovine beta-casomorphin-5 has been shown to display pronounced cardiatic activities. The gene sequence of a human beta-casomorphin-5, including plasmid insertion and fusion protein expression and cleavage instrumentary, has been synthesized by a manual phosphoramidite procedure and cloned in a bacterial system.
